La “cascada de fuego” de Yosemite

La llamada “cascada de fuego” de Yosemite, un inusual fenómeno óptico que tiene lugar de en ese parque nacional californiano, se repitó nuevamente el pasado fin de semana y fue capturado por numerosos fotógrafos, muchos de ellos aficionados, cuyas imágenes han convertido esta rareza visual en un acontecimiento en las redes sociales.

El espectáculo de la madre naturaleza atrae a centenares cada principio de febrero, quienes se dan cita en Horsetail Fall con la esperanza de que se den las condiciones necesarias para que, por un plazo de minutos, la famosa cascada del parque se torne anaranjada, como si fuera lava de volcán.

Another perspective of the Firefall. This is a picture of the Horse tail waterfall in Yosemite. Every year for two weeks in February, the sun sets at a certain angle that illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red making it look like a liquid fire. There are a number of conditions that need to be met to make this happen (enough snow, warm temperatures to melt that snow, and clear skies). I met photographers who said that they have been coming for 11 years only to see this happen 2 or 3 times. When the fall started glowing, I could not believe what I was seeing. For 10 minutes, all of us sat there mesmerized by this spectacle. When it ended, a few of us had tears in our eyes, while some where clapping , and others were just ecstatic to finally get a chance to see it after trying for years. #westcoast_exposures #usinterior #visitcalifornia #wildcalifornia_ #lonelyplanet #superhubs #500px #igdaily #ig_today #ig_impulse #ig_exquisite #princely_shotz #jaw_dropping_shots #artofvisuals #natgeoyourshot #igpodium #sfgate #nikon #yourtake #topshelf_shots #abc7now #firefall #rawcalifornia #optoutside #neverstopexploring #cnn #earthpix #igworldclub #beautifuldestinations #awesomeearth
