Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

Fleeting. An exciting theme, indeed. It’s all about special moment or movement, a wildly cheering crowd or photo of a double rainbow. So, we are told.

Yes. The fact that this theme is open to many interpretation is what makes it more exciting.

Waterfalls are endless fleeting and awful sight to me. But this Tinuy-an waterfalls in Bislig City, Philippines is quite unique. It is not simply a case of falling massive volume of water. It is also one of the few multi-tiered falls in three successions with pools in between.

Tinuy-an Falls may not be familiar to some, but it is noted to be the widest and the best waterfalls in the Philippines. It is  hidden in the heart of Bislig City, Surigao del Sur. This waterfalls is 95 meters wide and 55 meters high. That is why it has also earned the name “Niagara Falls” of Mindanao.

It is best to visit the place early in the morning from 9-12 noon. On a fair weather, sometimes a subtle rainbow appears across the wall of the waterfalls  due to the sun’s rays hitting the mists of the cascading water.

04On the side of the falls are staircases leading to the second and third level of the waterfalls. The falls in this area are smaller but the beauty is  still incomparable due to its unique formation that is similar to staircases of a basketball stadium.

Isn’t this fleeting?
