In the last few days I’ve seen a few fleeting mentions of Yosemite’s “Firefall,” a once-a-year natural phenomenon that occurs if conditions are exactly right. At sunset, if there is enough water from snowmelt and if visibility is good, Horsetail Fall becomes a glowing orange spray of light cascading down the cliff face. Photographers, catch it if you can, and from those of us who can’t, thank you.
I have mixed feelings about background sounds and music in these videos. If I were on the scene, I would watch in rapt and reverent silence and expect everyone around me to do the same.
