Tropical Horse Shoe Bend

When one thinks of the horse shoe bend or searches horse shoe bend on the web, it is is the famous horse shoe bend in the Grand Canyon of the United States that comes up. But, there are other horse shoe bends too, which I figured out when I was trekking through northern Philippines.

A Horse shoe bend in the tropical forests of Batad, Philippines
I was on my way to Tappiyah waterfalls from the village of Batad when at a very steep and rocky stretch, I saw this amazing horse shoe bend in the river that was flowing through dense tropical vegetation. This is the same river that has the Tappiyah falls a little upstream. I am sure that the view would have been better at a higher vantage point, but this is the best that I could manage and am happy with the results.
