7 Lakes of San Pablo , Laguna
« on: March 11, 2011, 12:21:37 PM »
After shooting for a client in Laguna , I decided to take my  adventure for a stroll at San Pablo Laguna's 7 Lakes(Business+Pleasure). I was advised  by my client that it's been raining for almost the whole week .We decided to spend the evening at my Kumpare's house in Batangas..It was indeed raining  the whole Wednesday.. thinking of my car coding the next day (Thursday)  I told my wife that we better be in Manila at least in the evening  (after the coding hours), my hope is still high that the sun will  somehow peek for at least the whole afternoon...High hopes! It was quite a drizzle in the morning but after seeing a glimpse of Haring Araw ... my  prayers are indeed answered!

Here are my snapshots :)

1. Lake Calibato
 
Lake Calibato is one of the 7 crater lakes collectively called "Pitong Lawa" or Seven Lakes of San Pablo in Laguna. The lake is situated in Brgy. Sto. Angel in San Pablo City.

Great shots Royginald! I especially like your small stream shot of (near) Lake Calibato. I spent around 20 minutes in that section of the stream trying to achieve what you ended up with ... all to no avail. Galing mo pards!

I did the 7 Lakes adventure 3 weeks ago and it was fun. Here's my shot of Lake Mojicap
