Blazing 'firefall' lights up Yosemite, see the pictures here

Shutterbugs are descending upon Yosemite National Park this week to capture a natural phenomenon known as a firefall.

TravelYosemite.com, calls the phenomenon, "one of the most wondrous and handsome sights" at the park which is considered one of the crown jewels in the federal system.

Once a year, when the light from the sunset is just right, Mother Nature puts on a light show at Yosemite National Park.

Some photographers have had success this year as pictures of the glowing falls are showing up on social media. However, the falls' fiery appearance is only possible in February.

Horsetail Fall is a seasonal waterfall that only flows in late winter and early spring. In October, there's usually not enough snowpack to feed the falls. For a few days every February, the water turns an igneous orange for a few minutes at sundown. Below is a selection of shots from photographers who made the journey.
