Little Niagara called Tinuy-an Falls (Bislig, Surigao del Sur): Photo of the Day

Tinuy-an Falls is known as the “little Niagara” of the Philippines, with its beautiful 55-meter-high white water curtain. This multi-tiered waterfall, 95 meters in width, is located in Bislig, Surigao del Sur. The usual photo we see of the awesome Tinuy-an Falls is taken during the day. This shot by Mark Marcelino (check his Instagram acount, @mark.marcelino) was captured during the blue hour, he said. So we had to research what on earth “blue hour” is — “the period of twilight early in the dawn each morning and late dusk each evening when the sun is at a significant distance below the horizon and the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue hue.” Nice. The beauty of exploration: we always learn something new. Click the photo to enlarge.
