“Sa malayo! Sa merloquet! (Somewhere far! At Merloquet)”
For Zamboangueños, ‘merloquet’ used to be a fabled place pertaining to somewhere far far away when used in colloquial conversation. Nowadays, it pertains to Merloquet Falls that has gained popularity in the recents years due to its wide pour and lovely wall of cascades. It is still far far away in Zamboanga City but I managed to visit the place as a side trip while in the region.
Starting this week, Ironwulf En Route will feature a weekly Nikon Shot series. Images captured by Nikon cameras. Here’s the first one “Amidst the Flurry” taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 lens. Shot in Zamboanga City, I saw this girl enjoying her time feeding the pigeons. I had to place myself in an angle to isolate the subject away from the other crowd in the area and waited for the flurry of birds to happen.
