Also on a side note don’t forget to tag your images from this week with #sizzlesunday as I’ll be featuring my top 5 images on my stories again on Sunday! Get tagging and good luck my friends ♨️💥✌🏼
"Nature's Firefall" Horsetail Falls Waterfall at Sunset of El Capitan at Sunset in Yosemite National Park. I just delivered a 30” x 45” inch HD Acrylic image that glows of my “Nature’s Firefall”, a photograph of Horsetail Falls in Yosemite at Sunset in Winter. Do you need one?! This is a newer processed version of my image. I captured this many years ago and was one of the few people in Yosemite Valley shooting this day! I couldn’t see anyone! These days it is too much of a zoo to go but it is great to see so many people enjoying nature! Just be prepared for two mile long traffic jams and thousands of people if you visit during this time! Unfortunately many people advertised this wonder during the drought or strong winters with no water dripping at all. This is what makes it so illusive. This is nature’s version of the old man-made Yosemite Fire Fall. During the winter in Yosemite, coming off of El Capitan, there is an almost non-existent waterfall called “Horsetail Falls.” Many maps used to not even have it marked. During the last two weeks in February, IF there is water trickling over the edge, and IF it is clear at sunset (which doesn’t happen too often due to the winter storms) the setting sun will turn this waterfall into a stream of molten fire. The waterfall lights up like molten lava due to the angle of the sun. Inspired by Galen Rowell, many photographers have chased this elusive photo opportunity. I spent two evenings in a foot of snow in the middle of meadow trying to get the shot. The first evening was an absolute bust as it had been clear all day and at sunset the clouds hung over the peak. Luckily I captured his photograph titled “Full Moon over Half Dome”. The next evening everything worked out for this stunning shot. My people look at my image and think it is the old man-made firewall where they DID push a burning fire and coals over the edge.
Took the dog to Yosemite yesterday. (Still haven't taken my Mom) Tiny patches of snow in the valley, but really scarce. Most of the snow was on the passes leading into the valley, along CA-120 & CA-41. Glacier Road was closed for the winter, but I think more to keep stupid tourists from getting stuck.
The campgrounds past the CA-120 entrance had been converted into a snow play park for winter. Didn't get any pictures of it, too busy trying to teach Lena to mush. She got it if we we're moving, but couldn't start on her own, and would freeze up if there was too much tension on the line. She also thought tension on the line ment she should try and go that way. Although once I switched to walking on harness, constantly trying to pull me over onto my ass. It didn't help that it was extremely hilly too. Next time I'll find some flat ground and more time.
