This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

the forgotten old buruwisan falls (binaytuan falls)

Just 1 meter before the drop of Old Buruwisan

Folks who have been to Buruwisan falls are well aware of the location of another falls called Lansones. Just a few meters downstream from Buruwisan you follow the path to your right when you reached the fork. The trail is going upstream and after a less than 200 meters you'll be able to reach Lansones falls.

Nobody seems to bother finding out whats there downstream when you take the left of the fork. Nobody ever mentions that there is actually a beautiful site down there, on top of another waterfalls much higher than Buruwisan. We later found out its simply called Old Buruwisan (officially its known as Binaytuan Falls) , and unfortunately there is no (easy) trail going down to the base of the falls (a 200-meter drop).

A few meters from the drop of Old Buruwisan are waist to chest deep tubs - your own jacuzzi tubs.

Silky waters of old Buruwisan

The one a few feet from the actual drop is the largest ... and the most exciting one to be in to with only a huge rock between you and the drop :). I could not resist doing a long exposure with us in the frame :).
