Visit Yosemite National Park in mid-February and you just might witness a spectacular and brief phenomenon that’s known as a “firefall”.

That’s when the park’s seasonal 2,130 ft. Horsetail Falls meets the rays of the setting sun and creates a stunning reflection that appears to make the water glow; Similar to molton lava pouring into the sea.

“Horsetail is so uniquely situated that I don’t know of any other waterfall on earth that gets that kind of light,” sMichael Frye, author of “The Photographer’s Guide to Yosemite” told the Press Democrat.

According to the article, the phenomenon was first recorded in 1973 and, clear skies permitting, lights up every evening for about two weeks. Check out some more beautiful pictures of the glowing falls in our gallery below.
