Sometime it’s all about being at the right place at the right time. Case in point: This amazing photo of what appears to be Yosemite National Park’s Half Dome on fire. While photographing sunrise at the park, Austin Jenanyan noticed a cloud forming around Half Dome. It eventually morphed into the shape of a flame and was illuminated by the early morning light. It only lasted a few short moments, but Austin describes it as a surreal and magical experience. Photo courtesy of Austin Jenanyan. 🔥

Bridalveil Rainbow

When the sun is just right, so that the light hits it at the right angle…and the water flow is just right, so that the droplets of mist in the air are the perfect size…and you, as the observer are standing at precisely the right location so that all the angles are just right (a spot called Rainbow view)….Yosemite’s Bridalveil Falls will put on this great show. As the sun moves down on the horizon the rainbow will begin forming at the base and then spread, marching the whole way up to the top of the granite monolith above.
