Today's Photo of the Day comes from Bali, Indonesia. This is from the Tegenungan Falls area, and while not the main waterfall here, this is a far more complex set of waterfalls than the much bigger and more easily spotted main waterfall. From the top of the steps down to the bottom of the Tegenungan Falls, it's possible to go directly to the falls and miss these ones all together, but if you take the path to the left, you'll pass these waterfalls on the way down. The Tegenungan Falls are in Kemenuh, approximately 20 kilometers north of Sanur.
