Looks hot enough to roast Marshmellons by.

Row row row your boat...

It's okay. Those cliffs are made of dolomite.

FTA: But photographing Horsetail is a lesson in astronomy, physics and geometry as hopefuls consider the azimuth degrees and minutes of the earth's orbit relative to the sun to determine the optimal day to experience it. They are looking for the lowest angle of light that will paint Horsetail the colors of an iridescent sunset as rays reflect off granite behind the water. It materializes in varying degrees of intensity for the same two weeks every year.

Sounds more like it's a lesson in how to read a calendar.

The people in the background are witnessing a spectacular natural event that lasts only seconds, and they're chattering away like monkeys. Thankfully in America's national parks you only have to walk 1/4 mile down a trail to escape these cretins. Unfortunately, they'll still be waiting for you at the next movie you attend.

That's why I try to catch things like this twice. The first time for me to just experience it. The second time is when I bring the camera out and start thinking about angles and framing. I don't live life in a box, so how can I adequately capture something if I'm always only looking through a lens?

Now that's right pretty.

Wouldn't it be easier to color the water red in Photoshop?

Given the Mail's track record for fact checking, I take the article to mean that Yosemite doesn't have any waterfalls at all.
