A Most Incredible Sight

Horsetail Fall on Fire
Horsetail Fall at 5:33pm

I've been to Yosemite a zillion times and never in my life have I seen such wonderment. I  cradled my precious camera in my hands, as I stood in a sea of very, very fancy Nikons and Cannons with foot long lenses sitting atop expensive tripods. This fellow came all the way from Germany to record the event.

At 5:29 pm the birth of Horsetail Fall Flame began to emerge...the glow rose from the bottom up and continued for another magical 10 minutes.  I clicked away.

What a sight to behold....so glad I was there.

Sounds like this is no coincidence. I think Heavenly Father carefully designed this natural beauty (and its amazing timing).
