Night's Tail
Photo By Aaron Meyers

  • Title: Night's Tail
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Yosemite National Park
  • Nearest Town: Yosemite
  • Notes: In order for this phenomenon to happen at night there needs to be enough water in Horsetail Falls, there needs to be no clouds in the sky, the sun has to be still low in the sky (before twilight), and you need a nearly full moon. The next time that the sun is low enough for this to occur in the way it did in 2011 is not for over another 40 years!
  • Description: Thousands of photographers flock to Yosemite National park in February to capture the Horsetail Falls "Fire Falls" - a phenomenon in which the setting sun makes the waterfall appear to be on fire. What most people don't know is that the same thing happen with the setting moon. Due to the way our eye views light in the dark we only see a white light on the falls but our camera sensors beautifully capture the color in the falls. "Night's Tail" was taken at 4am, before the sun began to rise, on a clear night in April.
  • Gear: Nikon D300s w/Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR:
