Firefall Phenomenon


Yesterday I was finally able to shoot the famous firefall phenomenon. I already tried to capture this last weekend but I had no luck with the weather.
During the last two weeks of February, the waterfall will be backlit by the setting sun creating a natural firefall.
Only during these two weeks will the waterfall carry enough water and the sun will be setting in the right angle.
It is quite a spiritual experience.
At first the waterfall is hardly visible. Only when the sun hits it in the right angle will the mist of the waterfall create such a spectacular phenomenon. The waterfall seems to appear and disappear with the suns rays.
