“Firefall” at Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park, California, looks like a scene from a fantasy movie. But, it is an ordinary waterfall, which is illuminated by the sunset, that gives it a fiery glow. pic.twitter.com/kP2aFmM6Cg— Domenico Calia (@CaliaDomenico) January 19, 2020

We have those in Australia, although as you'd expect they go up, not down. pic.twitter.com/CQWoFnM2Qu— Alister Lockhart (@Alsmoviegroove) January 20, 2020
I have a beautiful photo on glass with etched aluminum background by artists Pezman and Dennis Matthewson of these same falls. pic.twitter.com/ECCBy5KeeU— BobbieLenhoff (@BobbieLenhoff) January 19, 2020
I'm old enough to remember that the original Yosemite Fire Fall happened each summer night, when actual fire from burning bark was pushed off the cliff for a very popular park spectacle. We kids were always thrilled to watch. The last one was 1968.— Bearzus (@bearzus) January 21, 2020

Horsetail waterfall is a seasonal waterfall located in Yosemite National Park, California. It flows in the winter season and early spring. The waterfall is located on the east side of El Capitan. If the waterfall happens to be flowing in the month of February and the weather conditions are suitable then the setting sun lights up the waterfall, making it glow orange and red.
