Yosemite Firefall

Yosemite Firefall

Yosemite Horsetail Fall is located in Yosemite National Park in California, occurring on the east side of El Capitan. What makes it so famous is due to its "Firefall" phenomenon. That is, in each February, under proper weather conditions, the setting sun illuminates the waterfall, making it glow in red.

I was very lucky to witness this spectacular Firefall during my first time visit to Yosemite National Park.
