Not sure if I'd like to live here! (Especially with occasional earth tremors & landslides) Taken on the road between Bangaan & Banaue, in northern Luzon Island, Philippines. This area is famous for the Ifugao rice terraces. I was surprised at the shadow detail still visible to a digital camera after sunset.

C'est vrai qu'elle est sur un piton dangereux cette maison au bord du vide. Un cliché intéressant.
Merci pour le partage et bon dimanche.

How nice to see you back at Trekearth. This is indeed as precarious a dwelling as could imagine, short of sleeping from a hanging hammock from the face of "El Capitain" in Yosemite. The smoke rising from the fire adds a touch of the contemporaneous. This place is not abandoned. The long beams neatly laid against the cliff is cannot possibly help make this place safer.
Your photos in the past were mostly scanned I believe. Is this a new digital camera?

Incredible scenery! But how do you hold that shack! Not for nothing would get into the world! Certainly that's an incredible people, able to adapt to any environment, whether on land or on water! This beautiful testimonial!

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the house then toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. It is also alloeing me to see the details and colors of the house. The hazy sky does not hurt the ouput of the colors. Have a nice day.

Wow! That's the word: Precarious!
No man, I'm sure I would hate to live there! Excellent for a short visit, for the curiosity that means, for the unique picture I could take of it... but, to live there, no way!
Thank you for bringing that image to all of us, in a certain way a good mood photograph!
TFS - congrats,

A very precarious predicament indeed, I don't think I would sleep very well at night hanging off a cliff like that in such an unstable landscape with just a couple of sticks supporting it, madness! but hey great views! Great capture and TFS
