If you head to Yosemite National Park this time of year and stop by Horsetail Fall at just the right time, you might see something spectacular: As the sun sinks low in the sky, the waterfall glows with streaks of gold and yellow — and it looks just like molten lava.
After years of shooting the phenomenon, [photographer Michael] Frye knows all the tricks — from the best parking spots to the best place to set up your tripod. But he says it isn’t the resulting prints so much as the experience that he’s come to cherish.
"The photographs of Horsetail Fall are spectacular, but actually witnessing this event in person is much more amazing."
