Photographers gather for waterfall of fire


Published on Feb 27, 2012

Nature photographers from around the world have gathered in the Yosemite Valley, California, to catch a rare shot of a waterfall that turns to fire. Horsetail Waterfall is believed to be the only waterfall in the world that becomes naturally illuminated by the setting sun, giving the appearance of fl owing molten lava. In mid-February, and given the right weather conditions, the fire lights up around dusk and lasts for about two minutes as the sun sets behind the cascade. Recent storms and snowfall mean the fi nicky fall is fl owing again, and park officials are hopeful it will last through 24 February, which is generally the last day of the year it can be seen. Once an obscure event, park offi cials say that Internet discussions have made it more popular in recent years.
