The Horsetail Firefall in Yosemite National Park in California is an amazing spectacle. It’s a seasonal waterfall that flows in the winter and early spring, and falls over the east side of El Capitan, so as a backdrop it has one of the most impressive walls of granite in the entire park. The waterfall itself is unimpressive — just a trickle of water fed by the melting snow tumbling 480 meters down El Capitan, but during middle to late February when the weather is just right, the very last sunrays of the day selectively linger on the falls, lighting it up with a golden glow that makes the water look like flowing lava. Each year hundreds of photographers and thousands of park visitors gather in the waning evening light hoping to catch this amazing natural display that last hardly ten minutes.
