Every year in February, the photographers are always gathered in Yosemite National Park, one of California tourist attractions, to capture the natural phenomenon that happens once a year, which is a waterfall of lava flowing from a height of 1500 feet.
The waterfall has been the object of photographers in every year since its popularity has spread widely on the Internet. It resembles a lava which fell in a ponytail and was first immortalized by a photographer named Galen Rowell in 1973.
Author of "Guide for Photographers in Yosemite," Michael Frye, said waterfall that is very unique, because of geographical conditions can cause sunlight shining on the falls to make gold colored or reddish.
For shooting pony tail, it takes special tricks and fortune. The photographer must consider the position of the earth to the sun, then the lowest point of light that would illuminate the lava. The time factor must also be considered, since the second week in February is the best time to capture terjut water, the cloud of lighting affects the rest of the winter.
Yosemite National Park Board estimates that 24 February is the last time for journalists to get the right moment.
