Prinza Dam

September 27, 2011

The Prinza Dam is a Spanish Era made Dam located in the heart of the town of General Trias. It was said to be built within the 18th to 19th Century which stops the water from the Upland Parts of Southern Tagalog and especially the Laguna de Bay Area. Though today, the dam is not very functional as a real dam but it still is strong enough to guard of water from overflowing.

During the Typhoon season, this dam does overflow just like the photo shown above. But during the Hot Summer days, the river bed turns dry.Sadly, some vandals especially the once left during the last elections did remove some of the beauty and serenity that the dam creates and gives the people passing by but most of us still thinks its a great sight to see.

Today, Typhoon Pedring caused a big casualty to the Country with its strength of 130 - 150 kph and speed of approximately 20 kph. Classes are suspended as it sent out inches and inches of flood and devastating winds. Even the Town of Noveleta here in Cavite did not get away as they declared themselves in the State of Calamity. Please Pray for the Philippines and all the Filipinos who are still suffering from the Typhoon. God Bless us all.

Glad you caught someone up there, I didn't realize how big the dam is until I noticed him. Lovely shot, Steven.

So sorry about Typhoon Pedring...

Leif - Thank you so much Leif! Typhoon Pedring is on its way out of the Country and I hope that as it leave it will stop doing destruction in China and Vietnam.

Wow! I'll be looking forward to that Leif! I'm starving for some cake for sometime now :D

JM - Thank you so so much JM! That was actually an accident because I did not notice him while I was taking the shot but I do agree it gave the photo much emphasis of the size of the Dam thank you so much JM!
