this turnout is about 1.7 miles west of Yosemite Lodge. Get there early for a parking spot and also a good spot for your tripod.
Every February the sun hits Horsetail falls giving it an orange glow. I spent 4 days in Yosemite trying to catch this special occasion. It's a hit or miss event and I was lucky enough to come out with this photograph. I used a tripod mounted 70-200 at 160mm f8 with an exposure of .3 sec.
