Horsetail Fall, located in Yosemite National Park in California, is a seasonal waterfall that flows in the winter and early spring. The fall occurs on the East side of El Capitan in Yosemite NP. There are a few days every mid to late February, where this fall is lit up by the setting sun and reflects a bright orange. This waterfall descends in two streams side by side, the eastern one being the larger, but both quite small. The eastern one drops 1,540 ft and the western one 1,570 ft, the highest fully-airborne waterfall in Yosemite National Park that runs at some time period every year. The waters then gather and descend another 490 ft on steep granit slabs, so the total height of these waterfalls is 2,130 ft. The image here was taken on April 26, 2010.

Description

Horsetail Falls in Yosemite National Park is often photographed in mid - late February for the brillant setting sun light effect during that time of year. In 2010 the region of the Yosemite National Park received more than 100% of the average rain fall, allowing the Hosetail Falls to flow abundantly through May 2010. Even without the "Feburary Light Show" the falls pulled off a spectacular show in May 2010.
