I had an opportunity over the last week to film the annual "Firefall" spectacle at Yosemite National Park for my film "TimeScapes." During this brief period, the sun sets at such an angle in February as to backlight the waterfall at Horsetail Falls with very warm, direct sunlight from the distant horizon, making it appear almost like lava. http://www.michaelfrye.com/articles/horsetail.html
This frame was taken a couple days ago from a spot just east of the El Cap picnic area. Canon 5D Mark II + 600mm f/4 + doubler. We tilted the camera off axis just to try something different.

Wow, the colors are nice. I saw an article about that in Outdoor Photographer. On this shot the trees on their side make it odd for me.

great capture! I wonder how the prime day is going to look like. Good job on all your work Tom.

Great shot. I managed to capture the effect three years ago, but have bee shut out by weather each year since then.

Great colors, I would prefer it in portrait format though because of the trees on their side.

Excellent photo. There was actually an event at Yosemite that used to take place nightly called "Firefall" (http://firefall.info/) that involved...well...falling fire. I had no clue there was a similar natural phenomenon there as well. Beautiful shot.

Very intense colors. At first glance I thought it was some lava flow in Hawaii.
