Rainforest waterfall

The most beautiful environment of the Manila Ocean Park is the Agos (flow) section. Ferns, vines and a waterfall provide a wonderful and dramatic backdrop to the fish tanks that contain creatures found in river ecosystems, like the Giant Arapaima which I posted back in March.

Natural or man-made, take a refreshing dip in Watery Wednesday.

This is a pretty scene. I bet the sounds are special too.

Looks refreshing!

James said...

That looks like great place and I bet the sounds and smells are pretty nice too. I hope small children don't get to close to the Giant Arapaima. Yikes!

I feel no sympathy for the Giant Arapaima, but this view is stunning! It is quite incredible that this is not natural, who built this section is really an artist.

Hilda: If I am every lucky enough to get to Manila, this place is a must on my list to visit. Great picture. So much texture and sound in 2D!

c'est magnifique, un endroit qui doit être apprécié en été quand il fait trop chaud
it is splendid, a place which must be appreciated in summer when it is too much warm

We are bot 'waterfallers' today - though yours is hiding behind the vines.
My fall is just a stream with no place to go but down...

Is it behind glass? Are those tree reflections? Your picture is a very beautiful piece of art!

Lois said...

I enlarged it so I could really enjoy it better Hilda! It's beautiful.

Ellie:
Well, it's under glass! The roof of this section is made of glass to let the sunlight in.

Halcyon:
I was wondering that myself when we were there. I still don't know!
