Amazingly this is the rainy season! The strong El Nino has changed it all. On an overcast day this sight is also wonderful, but the colors dull and faded. I would very much have liked to stay up here during sunset or sunrise! Perhaps not strong blues, but how this would have been in the soft and colorful hues of dusk or dawn!

I arrived just in time before large vessel spewed out a huge number of visitors that would have made this a very difficult place to be, as there is absolutely no room anywhere – everything is razor sharp karst or lime stone, and the steep trail down is only able to support one person in any direction at the same time.

In all this a guy had lost his drone, and was frantically running up, down and sideways to see if he could recover it. The steep cliffs create unpredictable and very localized turbulence, and a powerful downdraft could easily have pushed it down into the ocean. I hope he found it as it would have given him amazing footage of this location from the air.

Wayag afternoon
This is the other side – facing north and the bay in which all ships anchor, except the private luxury yachts – they seem to anchor on the other side seen in the first image. One was there during my visit, and it was the most sci-fi vessel I’ve ever seen. Like a torpedo!
