Fire Waterfall

A rare sight in Yosemite National Park. This is the reflection of sunlight hitting the falling water at a specific angle on El Capitan. It can only be seen in a 2 week window towards the end of February, weather permitting. The waterfall is from melting snow and ice at the top of the mountain, and when the sun is in an exact position, the rays hit the waterfall precisely.
