Horsetail Fall cascades down the surface of El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park in CA, when there is an adequate snow accumulation combined with warmer temperatures. For only two weeks in February the angle of the setting sun on clear days illuminates the waterfall, transforming its color to that of flaming lava. The phenomenon attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year. Yosemite National Park is a national treasure and must be protected as such for future generations.

Dr Reddy is a Radiologist at the Walnut Creek Medical Center in CA and is pursuing a second career as a landscape/nature photographer. More of her work can be seen at: www.sapnareddy.com.
