Smoke on the water - Watery Wednesday

click on images to enlarge

I thought there was a forest fire when I saw smoke descending from the mountains. When I realized it was fog, I was simply delighted.


These watery photos were taken at the twin lakes of Balinsasayao in Sibulan, Negros Oriental.

It looks cold out there. I like the glassy surface of the lake on the first image.

Miranda, I love the water in those shots. Do you have many mountains in the Philippines? I'm in Bermuda and it is relatively flat.

Beautiful! I remember there's something like that in Lake Danao (in Ormoc). We overstayed in the floating cottage for lunch that we lacked time to visit the area with smoke.

I wish that I were in that little canoe with you! This looks marvelous!

Beautiful waters. Nice shots

I thought so too. I love the first photo, the fog is almost shaped like a heart. I was there in 2006, and I am from Dumaguete. May I correct you, that Lake Balinsasayaw is towards North to Sibulan, Neg Or. not Valencia.

Lovely photos! It really looks like fire at first, good to read it was fog! That is much more pretty!

Thanks for stopping by!

These are beautiful and tropically eye appealing. I've always liked seeing the fog that log to the ground, hugging the clouds or rising off of the water. Very nice!
