Fire and Ice was taken of Horsetail Falls in Yosemite National Park. For a few weeks every February, if conditions are perfect, the sun sets in just the right position to light up the falls, making them appear as if they are on fire. In addition to Fire and Ice, see my other image of Horsetail Falls, entitled Firefall.
I have been photographing Horsetail Falls in Yosemite National Park for several years. It's an amazing natural phenomenon that potentially occurs every February -- if conditions are right. First, it has to snow; second the snow needs to melt so that there is water flowing over the falls; and third, it needs to be clear at sunset. Being clear at sunset is often the toughest condition to meet in the mountains in the middle of winter. If all the conditions are met, the falls will light up for about five minutes at sunset. This phenomenon is sometimes called the “firefall”, however, do not mistake this natural phenomenon with the historic, man-made Firefall off Glacier Point that occurred many years ago.
Fire and Ice was taken in 2019. I have another image, entitled Firefall, that was taken in 2016 and is one of my best sellers. These two images are very different. The top of the waterfall in Fire and Ice was partially shaded by cloud cover, hence less of fire like glow. Fire and Ice also features the ice on the face of El Capitan also being illuminated by the setting sun.
