  • Firefall Yosemite Park

    The stunning visual display happens every February when the light hits a waterfall tumbling down El Capitan.
    But the intensity of this phenomenon depends on the volume of water and the cloud cover.
    The park authorities said: "The Horsetail Fall phenomenon appears when the angle of the setting sun sets the waterfall ablaze with reds and oranges, like a fire was falling down the cliffs on the shoulder of El Capitan."
    Here is how some photographers captured it.

    Credo quia absurdum.


    Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

    You can see this for free after dark in major cities such as Chicago and Detroit, when the gangs burn down the neighborhoods.

      I went to Yosemite a couple of times to watch this. It's worth the 3-4 hour drive to & from.

        Dawn and dusk can transform almost anywhere but I guess Yosemite also has other things going for it
