inside the seventh wonder of the world by summerfield

inside the seventh wonder of the world

inside the caves where the underground river runs through, it is totally dark. with the help of two flashlights that the tour guide uses, we were able to see various formations of the rocks. and with a tad of 'blindly' manipulating my canon, this shot became possible with the flash position on. this is one of the vviews after about five minutes of boat paddling inside the river. during high tide, the water rises about seven feet from the waterline below to the dark line halfway the stone walls,

it was incredibly amazing what one may find inside these caves. and if you have quite an imagination, just in this photo alone you can find or make out a lot of unexpected things, shapes or images.

what do you see in the rock fomation above?

thank you, folks, for your patience whilst i am on this trip. sleep is finally catching up with me and i have to give in. i acknowledge that i am way behind in commenting on your posts, but i do hope you understand. also i apologize for the incredibly horrible typing i did on yesterday's posting; i have since edited my caption and hope it made sense as well as this one.

this is totaly sooc as i didn't want to spoil the image.
Beautiful. I love caves.

Awesome shot Summerfield! You've taken me to a place I may never get to see! And my goodness- you are on a wonderful vacation- don't worry about the posts!! I'm not vacation and I'm behind on them too!! I think I see people standing in a line on the lower portion of the rocks. Hmmm...guess that indicates was doing yesterday!

@crickle1969 - doubt you will like this one, we had to wear helmets so the millions of bats can't poop on you! thanks, crystal.

@kmrtn6 - oh, wow! thanks, kylie.

@catsmeowb - you would've loved it there, camille. except of course for the falling bat poop! which by the way i never got, but the others on the boat did. thanks, my friend.

@russianblue - if you love cave exploring, then this is your shangri-la. there are some very faded chalk marks on some of the walls dating back to the turn of the last century when it was first discovered and the rock formations are to die for, photographically. thanks, kass.

@olivetreeann - thanks, ann. palawan is such a wonderful place i wanted to kill those people who were rushing me whilst i was taking photos. haha!

@jannkc - right on, jann. but can you see the elephants? :-) thank you.

@steeler - howard, you'll miss a lot if you don't come to palawan. you should make it a point to see this place at least once. scuba and u/w exploration is to die for. i just contented myself on live star fishes on the shore, and a variety of fish schools as i treaded the shallow waters. there were some odd looking shells i wanted to take home but we were told they have special detectors at the airport and can't take them. the overall view is stunning! it's totally different from your cape shots, but just as stunning. thanks, howard.

I've been in caves before, but none quite as stunning as this one. And I never viewed them from a boat. This is incredible, summerfield. Love the texture of the rock and the colors .. plus the feeling of dampness and cool air. And yes I do know about the bats. But, they are interesting as well. Gorgeous place that you're at . . glad that you are enjoying it!! :)

@karenann - oh, did i mention the ceiling formations were equally stunning and awesome? reviewing my shots to see if i have one good enough to post. remember i was adjusting the camera in the dark. and i think i turned off the IS the night before when i was taking night shots and forgot to turn it back on.
