The Miracle of Nature

This magical phenomenon appears in the rocky ‘El Capitan’, Yosemite National park, California. The cascade is called ‘Horse Tail’ and this seasonal fall occurs during the winter and in the spring it dries up. As you can see in these pictures, looks like lava is falling from the top, but it is just an illusion! Spectacular optical illusion is created when the Sun goes down and cascade is illuminated from behind so the light of the Sun rays creates an illusion of a fire cascade. This phenomenon happens only in early february and can be seen only for a couple of minutes and from a certain position. So if you’d like to take a picture of it, you will have to be very patient and be very very lucky! The people who saw it, said it looks really amazing!
