An Evening at the Fire- Falls

    Newer Older

    Horsetail Falls, Yosemite National Park, CA

    Time Lapse Video HERE.

    Note: Every year for a few days in the month of February, the sun's angle is such, that it lights up Horsetail Falls in Yosemite, as if it were on fire. It truly is an amazing experience and one that I was fortunate to witness this week. This photo was captured from Southside Drive, with a Nikon D700 and a Nikon 70-200 VRII.

      Yeah I agree that last year's shot is a little bit better. I do have tons more that I need to process (from Saturday) and of course got to stitch the Pano.

      I really like your shot too. You were all concerned that it wouldn't be sharp, but I think it looks great (at web res.). It was great meeting you guys and so much fun hanging out with the crowd. Great experience!

      I saw your first photo from Facebook and have been waiting for your exciting photo. I think I will try to schedule a trip next Feb.
      Thanks for sharing! That's amazing.

      Awesome shot there! It was definitely great meeting you and Mike there. Those 3 hours seemed to whiz by. We'll have to get together for some future shoot.

      I might be heading over again next weekend for horsetail if the weather decides to clear up for a day.

      Hi Steven. If you can go, try and go this year. The window is until March 2nd. Just check the weather forecast and go. I believe it will be clear from the 24th onwards for a couple of days.
