Every year for a few days in the month of February, the sun’s angle is such, that it lights up Horsetail Falls in Yosemite, as if it were on fire.

Horsetail Fall in California flows only in winter and spring. Most days of its life; this fall has a regular color. But every February, just for a couple of days, this fall turns into the fire. Lit by the sun, Horsetail Fall reflects orange and red rays.

Lightning strikes water!

This up to 1000 years old snow has metamorphosed into highly pressurized glacier ice that contains almost no air bubbles.

Even NASA cannot explain it. It’s best to gaze in wonder at the sliding rocks on this dry lake bed in Death Valley National Park. Racetrack Playa is almost completely flat, 2.5 miles from north to south and 1.25 miles from east to west, and covered with cracked mud. The rocks, some weighing hundreds of pounds, slide across the sediment, leaving furrows in their wakes, but no one has actually witnessed it.

"Every year in February, hundreds of photographers come to Yosemite for a chance of seeing the sunset light illuminate Horsetail Falls off El Capitan. Many conditions need to happen for this to occur, and I was lucky to have seen a decent display of light." -Jim Patterson
