Water

Ahhhhh WATER...... This is definitely where I 'd rather be right now....

Photo Theme. Join the blogroll. Visit participants.

It was taken at Hidden Valley Springs in Alaminos, Laguna, Philippines. The springs are warmed by a nearby dormant volcano. One of my most favourite places in the world....

I've been getting over a case of cabin fever lately, and the next picture, which was supposed to be my entry for last week's EMPTY should explain it.....This is the scene that I have been coming home to for the past few months.... an empty parking lot covered in snow.... as I traverse the snow to my lonely car near the lamp post, I imagine the rest of the people that were parked here in the morning, all warm at home, probably finished dinner and relaxing together with their families, or even already in bed.... while I'm still just making my way home.... depressing eh? Oh well, Spring is here, let's leave the Seasonal Affective Disorder behind!

Happy Photohunting Folks!

That first picture is absolutely gorgeous!

Hopefully your view coming out to the parking lot will at least be not so dark and cold soon. :)

Laguna is known for their hot springs. Bata pa yata ako nun last time we went there. Seeing the 1st pic makes me wanna go to the beach. Napakinit ng weather dito ngayon. Malagkit sa balat. :(

Ang sad naman nun 2nd pic. Before natutuwa ako sa snow but when I look at it for a long moment, nagiging gloomy ako.

I prefer the first picture and would go in (not jump, lol) right away ! Seems to be a wonderful place (not for Nermal) Snow I really don't like and I am happy that spring has started now and it's warmer, the birds are singing, (Arthur is happy and Pookie too, the others don't care)the flowers are coming out and oh horror, we have to mow the grass !

Hi Angelo. Thank you for visiting my photo hunt earlier.

That's a lovely photo. Sadly I haven't been there yet even though it's relatively near. It really looks like paradise.

The 2nd photo is quite sad but I'm sure that once you get home and see Nermal, the sadness always disappears.

Take care!

Daisy said...

Wow, that looks like paradise! And warm water too. I can see why it is one of your favorite places.

Love the Springs. I posted photos a couple weeks back of the Tabacon Hot Springs in Costa Rica. For a minute that's where I thought you were too. I sat in those warms (hot) waters all day. Nothing more relaxing.
And yes, spring is finally here- now that parking lot will be covered with raindrops.

What a contrast of photos! Remember: April begins tomorrow so there is hope!

PresentStorm said...
