On 4th Oct 2009 I joined friends from the Photographic Society of Negri Sembilan and their family for a weekend outing at the Jeram Toi Waterfalls. The waterfalls comprised of 3 levels of freezing cold water, is located just 20 minutes drive from Seremban, the capital of the state of Negri Sembilan. Sixteen of us ascended the almost vertical steps and had a wonderful time 'shooting' the beautiful cascading water and the surrounding sites all in it's natural form. It was a weekend well worth the effort of getting up at 5.30 am on a Sunday morning and making the 45 minutes drive to Seremban and another 40 minutes to and from the waterfalls. Some pictures captured during the trip are featured here.
