Let there be light: Photographing Yosemite's elusive 'Firefall'
Once a year, photographers turn their lenses toward Yosemite's Horsetail Fall and hope for the best. If the conditions are right, the waterfall will be transformed into a spectacle known as 'Firefall' as the mid-to-late February sun casts a blazing orange glow on the water – that is, if the water is flowing, and if the horizon isn't too cloudy. And that's not to mention the difficulty of nabbing a coveted spot in view of the falls, as well-informed photographers claim their spaces early in the day.
After years of drought, the falls in Yosemite are finally flowing this month and photographers like Taylor Gray have been able to capture the event with a lot of patience and a little luck. It's quite the effort to put in to get the shot, but the results are truly spectacular. Read Gray's recounting of capturing the magic moment at the falls over at Resource Travel. You might just want to book a trip to Yosemite this time next year...
