Voor de natuurliefhebbers hebben we een natuurfenomeen klaargezet dat zeker niet onderdoet van het Noorderlicht. Ieder jaar in Februari heb je de kans dit pareltje te zien als je toevallig in het Yosemite National Park in Amerika bent.

In dit fabelachtige natuurpark heb je een waterval die de Horsetaill Fall wordt genoemd. Dit is een waterval die van een steile rots af klatert en jaarlijks de trukendoos opent. Als de zon in de juiste hoek staat, vangt de waterval het op onnavolgbare wijze op en kleurt de gehele waterkolos vlammend rood. Dit bijzondere schouwspel wordt ook wel de Firefall genoemd, vrij vertaald noemen we dat de vuurwaterval.

Fotografen van over de hele aardbol trekken naar het park om dit sensationele verschijnsel van dichtbij mee te kunnen maken. Dat levert weer heerlijke beelden, geen Photoshop niks, op die we graag met jullie delen.

The Return of Firefall I had published photographs of this phenomenon last year. This year, I feel fortunate to have been one of the firsts to witness it. In fact, I just drove back home after seeing this unforgettable moment. This is the Horse tail waterfall in the Yosemite National Park. Every year for a few days in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a molten lava.

Firefall 2017- it's that time of year again for the famous #firefall #yosemitenps. This trip almost didn't happen due to the crazy road conditions at Yosemite. There has been so much water that a lot of the roads were closed due to mudslides. Somehow we made it here at the very last minute. I still think the mist I saw last year was better but it wasn't bad this time either. Please scroll down on my feed to see previous years firefall if you like. Had an awesome time with some fun and talented photographers @naminou @jc.liang @sinanuong. Was suppose to meet up with a couple more but got lost in the rush. For those that plan on going to see this, be careful since there has been so much water that some of the roads are falling apart. Had an awesome weekend!!! – A special thank you to my wife for letting me go on these crazy fun trips before I get too old to travel. – – #usaprimeshot #pixworld_ #igworldglobal #artsyheaven #heatercentral #ig_color #worldcaptures #ouramazingearth #earthofficial #beautifuldestinations #special_shots #Earthpix #wildernessculture #travelstoke #foxnews #abc7now #ktvu #gottolove_this #yesabc #westcoast_exposures #sunsetstream_westside #yosemitenation #globeshotz #Nationalparkgeek @nationalparkgeek #worldprime #yescnn @awesome.earth.pix #awesomeearthpix #yesweather

I will make this the last Firefall photograph of this year. Promise not to talk about this event until next year. Today, as I was going through my photo library for an unpublished Firefall pic to send to a magazine, I realized this was one of my personal favorites from that evening. No idea why I didn't share it the first time. This is the Horse tail waterfall in the Yosemite National Park. Every year for a few days in February, the sun sets at a certain angle and illuminates the waterfall in luminescent orange and red, making it look like a molten lava. #firefall #firefall2017 #cool_capture_ #photoarena_nature #naturewhisperers #inspiring_photography_admired #dream_image #visitcalifornia #jaw_dropping_shots #gottolove_this #splendid_earth #thebest_capture #b_picturess #igs_america #ig_unitedstates #greatshotz #special_shots #magicpict #phototag_it #wildcalifornia_ #NikonLove #globalcapture #ig_exquisite #ig_impulse #viewbugfeature #usinterior #moodygrams #rawcalifornia
