I just got back from a 4-day President’s weekend trip from Yosemite, together with 9 other “photo explorers” from Orange County. We were also hopeful to see and photograph the Horsetail Fall, but I was not successful. We were also hopeful for snow, but it came when we left on Monday.
(see post below on what happened to my blog)
Horsetail Fall is a small, ephemeral waterfall that flows over the eastern edge of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley. For two weeks in February, the setting sun striking the waterfall creates a deep orange glow that resembles Yosemite’s historic “Firefall.”
This photo does not represent the phenomenon. Its very hard to see the waterfall, because there has not been water. This is my first and from now on, I will pay attention when we go back one year from now in February.
First stop – Cook’s Meadow
On our first day, we joined the Ansel Adams walk, a MUST for every visit. A group of 15 is taken around some of the most scenic spots of the park, where photographs can be taken. Not only will the guide from the gallery tells you what to see, he will also teach you the basics of your camera.
Second stop – Sentinel Meadow
Ebie’s got the Yosemite Falls in her hand ♪ ♫
This photo was taken at Sunset at the Swinging Bridge on our last day. I had asked one of the tourists to take of photo of me.
P.S. What a nightmare I have to go through. I have said this so many times, to back up your blog posts. Well, very unfortunate, the last time I did was May, 2011. I have to repost my entries, so please be very patient while I reconstruct my posts.
