Where: Mt. Famy, Laguna, Philippines

We started the trek up the mountain at 2:30 AM. Its was very muddy and the trail was very slippery (and thats putting it lightly). After 4 hours of sliding and kissing the mud, we reached the campsite. And it was all worth it.

This falls was a short trek from the campsite. You can see its full length here.

I know this is not the conventional POV for most waterfall shots but I kinda like this one. I wanted to use a slower shutter speed but could not. My tripod was of no use as I was on an 80 degree inclination, hanging on to some roots. One slip and Im done :D.

Mt Famy is popular for its 8 falls. We only got to explore two. So I guess I have enough reasons to go back there, 6 reasons to be exact :)

sayang bro medyo bitin yun framing. sana lower POV para medyo kita lahat. nag swimming kami dyan bro lamig ng tubig! :) Thanks for sharing.


enchanting place. Very informative note. Where are the fairies? =P


The slow shutter speed on waterfall start to be boring. Like this one. Alfred

Hello Allen,
good captured on this one with the slow shutter speed!
Trees as framed makes it very unique and beautiful
good sharpness, superb colour and lights are good
Thank you for sharing

Wonderful light and compo.
Great colours, too.


Very nice photo. Well done.

hi Allan!

Enough reasons indeed! Beautiful place and your photo conveys it so well. Thanks for all the effort to bring us there.



beautiful marvelous capture - think I need to go there right now and jump into the pool - it is so inviting


Nice job!
We went there too, this jan4 lang. We started our trek at 12:30am, got there sa campsite 7am. Twas too muddy and too slippery. Took shots of Buruwisan & Lanzones falls, malas lang, malakas ang bagsak ng tubig, malakas ang anggi, d kmi mkalapit with my camera.
The more reason to go back there, yet for at least another year..
Keep it up.
