And The Journey Begins #2


There is more to life than increasing speed. ~Gandhi.

(My first attempt at using a slow shutter speed. Needs improvement, pero happy na rin ako. Used a rock as support. No tripod yet. Calling dear Santa, malapit na po ang Christmas. I’ll be happy with a second hand hehehe)

    Salamat for notifying me, Kapatid. Siguro something’s wrong with flickr ngayon. Hayan, ok na.

  3. kapatid, nakita ko rin.haha
    ang ganda ng epek ng tubig. πŸ™‚

    parang may pag-ibig na dumadaloy.haha

  4. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Sa wakas, nagpakita rin sa ‘yo ang mailap na larawan ng tubig haha
    Napaka-poetic naman ng tingin mo sa tubig dyan sa falls. Ayun oh, parang may pag-ibig lang na dumadaloy haha

  5. Gorgeous! hindi halatang wala kang tripod.

  6. nortehanon Sep 4th 2010

    Thank you po πŸ™‚ I used a rock kaya nag-steady siya hehehe

  7. it works very well, cool shot

  8. nortehanon Sep 4th 2010

    Thank you!

  9. Steady hand!
    Superb for a first try on slow shutter speed!

  10. nortehanon Sep 4th 2010

    Had to employ a rock as tripod, Mommy Ebie. I think I have steady hands, but not steady enough for a 60-second exposure hehehe

  11. wow ganda naman kainggit naman..

  12. nortehanon Sep 4th 2010

    Maraming salamat, Jaid. Nakow, kayang-kaya mo rin naman yan gawin eh.

  14. nortehanon Sep 4th 2010

    Thanks, Otto.
    I know Santa will be kind πŸ™‚

  15. refreshing shot Ms. N.
    one thing i am missing way back diyan sa atin ay ang tubig.
    walang gayan sa disyerto eheheh

    parang painting lang, Galing!

    God bless po!

  16. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Salamat, Pong. Oo nga pala, wala palang tubig dyan. Hayaan mo, magpapadala ako ng ilang drum ng tubig sa ‘yo hehehe
    God bless din, iho.

  17. I think it looks beautiful just the way it is… well done, and don’t be so hard on yourself, its better than I could do:)

  18. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Thank you very much for your kind words, Pam.

  19. nelson Sep 4th 2010

    nice photo nortehanon! try the technique in pinipisakan falls and surely you’ll be amazed with the result. πŸ˜‰

  20. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Damo nga salamat, Mano Nelson!
    I’m hoping I could visit Pinipisakan soon. Gusto ko rin kasi ipakita dito sa blog ko yung place baka sakali makapag-invite ako ng ilang bloggers to visit it.

  21. miss n! that is such a nice shot!

    how do you do that on a dslr? i’ve ha mine for almost two years na, di pa din ako marunong nyan! help!

    love it!!!!

  22. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Maraming salamat, Ms. kg!
    Slow shutter lang po. Just make sure na hindi matindi sikat ng araw. Kung matindi po, you’ll be needing a filter. Wala pa po ako filter eh kaya blessing lang na makulimlim ang panahon noong marating ko ang falls na yan at saka napapalibutan siya ng maraming puno.

    You’ve got mail po pala πŸ™‚

  23. For me you did a perfect job on slow mo’ shot.

  24. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Maraming salamat, Jag πŸ™‚

  25. miss N, i started to wonder kung saang bahagi ka ng perlas ng silangan nagkukuta.ang dami kasing magagandang subject sa paligid mo eh.

    another beautiful pic.ang ganda talaga ng nature.na aapreciate ko s’ya from your picture.

    salamat.

  26. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Duking, basta’t nasa loob ka ng perlas ng silangan, talagang maraming magagandang subject sa paligid dahil ang buong perlas ng silangan ay napakaganda πŸ˜‰

    Maraming salamat din! Natutuwa akong makapagbahagi sa ‘yo.

  27. Been wanting to take photos like this. πŸ˜€ Wala ka nang nilagay na filter?

  28. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Wala, Boffill. Basta lang makulimlim ang panahon πŸ˜‰ Nag-iipon pa ako pambili ng filter eh. Kaya sa ngayon umaasa lang ako sa mood ng panahon hehehe. Saka ang location ng falls na yan ay maswerteng napapayungan ng dahon ng malalaking puno.

  29. Oh I see. Ang galing naman pala. Buti ka pa. Siguro next time kapag nakabalik ako sa province, tatry kong kumuha ng waterfalls shot. πŸ˜€ Nice nice. πŸ™‚

  30. nice shot…perfect…..

  31. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Salamat po πŸ™‚

  32. beautiful!

  33. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Thanks, Arlini! Kumusta ka dyan? I hope all is well.

  34. ang ganda!

    nakakamiss tuloy ang mga fieldtrips ko during college days… madalas maraming falls sa mga pinupuntahan namin.

  35. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Maraming salamat po! Hmn, napapaisip ako kung ilang taon na ba simula nung nasa college ka πŸ™‚

  36. bluguy Sep 7th 2010

    Nabasa ko na po ang entry mo, Kapatid. Sige po, dalawin ko ang site ng saranggola awards.

  38. Looks nice! Where was this shot? I’m thinking of going to Northern Samar some time in the future. Any suggestions? Better yet, care to show me around? Hehe. Take care!

  39. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Hi Cedric. Salamat. Welcome na welcome ka sa Northern Samar. Maraming magagandang tanawin dito. For one, we have the magnificent rock formations in Biri tapos pwede ka na dumiretso sa town ng Capul para makita mo rin yung lighthouse. Then, sa kabilang side naman ng probinsya, we have the Pinipisakan Falls. Maraming falls sa Northern Samar πŸ™‚ Email mo lang ako kung kailangang mong malaman ang tungkol sa byahe dito.

    Take care din po.

  40. Maganda ang kuha! lalo na ang scenery. Saang lugar ‘to?

  41. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Maraming salamat! Dito lang po ito kuha sa malapit.

  42. Ayos Miss N…buhay na buhay ang agos ng tubig.

  43. nortehanon Sep 8th 2010

    Maraming salamat, Lolo Jem. Yes, dahil po ang tubig ay buhay πŸ˜‰

  44. kung nakapatong lang sa bato to e di partida na. 4 months na ang nikon ko sakin pero diko parin natry to. nakakalimutan ko lagi. hehehe…..yeah, get a good tripod. must yan lalo kung byahe kayo tapos tipong 2 lang kayo. at least walang napag-iiwanan sa pic.

  45. nortehanon Sep 13th 2010

    Ang pusa ay naligaw din dito hehehe. Maraming salamat sa pagdalaw.

    Wow, batang-bata pa pala ang Nikon mo. 4 months lang. Pero dami ka na ring pics sa blog mo. That only means dami ka time to shoot. Sana ako rin hehehe

    Wala pa pambili tripod eh. Kaya kung saan-saan muna patong ang camera. Oks lang naman kasi kung ako lang at may kasama pang isa, yung kasama ko na lang ang pipiktyuran ko. Am not comfortable in front of the lens hehehe. Mas gusto kong nasa likuran ng viewfinder πŸ˜‰

  46. Nice capture πŸ˜€

  47. nortehanon Sep 13th 2010

    Maraming salamat! Welcome po dito sa bahay ko. Tuloy lang *hands over a cup of coffee* πŸ˜€

  48. i haven’t taken a waterfall with a tripod too, and like you, i use whatever in sight for support. Somehow, most of the waterfalls I go to needs hiking, and I am too lazy to carry extra weight, especially if the trail means having to climb. you’ve got a very beautiful shot of the waterfall.

  49. nortehanon Sep 14th 2010

    Thank you, Ms. Betchai. Now that you’ve reminded me about it, yes I should really have to consider the weight of my gears considering my weight (nasa borderline ako ng pagiging underweight) and my scoliosis.

  50. Ang galing mo Ms. N….
    Musta ka na?

  51. nortehanon Sep 21st 2010

    Maraming salamat, Angie, pero di po ako magaling. Sadyang maganda lang talaga ang tanawin πŸ˜‰
    Okay naman ako, salamat sa pangumusta. I hope you are well, too.

  52. hi Ms. N, parang ang sarap maligo sa talon mukang ang lamig ng kulay kristal na tubig. Mukang magiging follower ako ng series na ito!

  53. nortehanon Sep 21st 2010

    Hi Carla,
    Wow, may dagdag na follower ang series. Maraming salamat po. Yes, pag natural na falls talagang masarap liguan ang tubig πŸ˜‰

  54. Ms. N ako may nabiling tripod worth P400 lang, Mga 4ft lang ang taas pero super magandag kasama lalo na sa mga malayuang lakad kasi magaan lang. Dinala ko nga yun minsan nung naghike kami sa Lake Sebu at para makakuha din ng matinong shot ng falls dun. Do check out some tripods sa mga computer shops. I so love your waterfall shot here. Mga waterfalls talaga fave nature shot ko πŸ™‚

  55. nortehanon Sep 21st 2010

    Maraming salamat for your kind words about the photo. Sobrang naappreciate ko. Mahilig ka pala sa waterfalls shots. Sige, minsan siguro ay mag-take tayo ng pics sa Mindanao! πŸ˜‰

  56. Napakaganda Miss N! πŸ˜€

  57. nortehanon Sep 30th 2010

    Salamat, V!

  58. Ahahaha, tingin ako ng tingin sa mga larawan. So you’re in photography? You do that for a living?

    Hi N.

  59. nortehanon Oct 11th 2010

    Hobbyist lang po, beginner pa lang. Kapag may oras, sumusubok po akong mag-diskubre kung paano kumuha ng litrato.

    Hi din po! πŸ™‚

  60. Fantastic!! You’re great! a good photographer!! =)

  61. Thank you so very much for the kind words, Viola!

  62. marikit Jul 25th 2012

    Thank you very much for the very detailed blog. Kailangan namin itong mga bakasyonistang walang kotse. πŸ™‚

    Keep it up!

  63. I love this waterfall shot.. parang gumagalaw talaga yun water sa screen ko, hehe..

  64. Haha! Thanks! Ingatan mo monitor mo baka mabasa πŸ™‚
