Horsetail Falls

Horsetail Fall is a pathetically small (at least by Yosemite standards) seasonal waterfall that flows off the east side of El Capitan. Despite its size and fickle nature, this waterfall puts on one hell of a show. During the last few weeks of February, the setting sun’s rays strike El Cap at the correct angle to illuminate the falls and make it glow like flowing lava. It took me multiple attempts on consecutive years before I actually got this shot.
