Horsetail Falls Firefall Day 4

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011 at 3:12pm - Landscape

 My fourth and final day of shooting Horsetail Falls "Firefall" in Yosemite was quite the adventure.  The clouds were coming in with an approaching storm, and it looked like it wasn´t going to happen, since it needs to be clear on the horizion for the last light to strike the falls.  The clouds wre looking really cool though, so I thought I might drive to another location in the Valley to shoot since it seemed like the "Firefall" wasn´t going to happen.  Well as i was driving around the Valley loop, I looked over to my left and all of the sudden the falls lit up with the most amazing orange glow that it looked like a ribbon of fire, or flowing lava.  I just happened to be driving by a spot that had a great view of the falls, so I pulled right over, and ran down by the river to try and get as clear and unobstructed view as I could.  I love moments like this :)
