We are coming upon the time of year when throngs of visitors flock to Yosemite Valley to view and photograph a special light event. From around Valentine's Day until Feb. 24th, if conditions are right, Horsetail Fall is backlit as the sun sets, illuminating the water spraying off the top while the cliffs behind are in the shade. It is truly lovely.

If you are planning to photograph or view Horsetail Fall in Yosemite Valley this month, there are a few things you should know. First of all, as it stands now, conditions are not shaping up to be a stellar year to see the phenomenon. Because of the lack of snowfall this year, the watershed above the fall has little or no moisture to provide runoff.

Also, the National Park Service announced that they are instituting a special event pilot program that will include parking restrictions and traffic redirection from Feb 12-26. On those dates, you will need a special (free) parking permit to park in the designated areas. More info here.

As for me, I will be in the Valley for other reasons this month, but probably won't be joining the crowd at Horsetail Fall. I made this photograph back in 2014, a drought year, as you can see.

Every two months, I crank out a short article for Visual Wilderness, a website dedicated to teaching beginner/intermediate landscape photography techniques. This month, I wrote about going out in the field without a tripod. Sacrilege!

Testing the new Sony Ar7II, traveling with non-photographers, and how I found my sea legs. It's all in my latest blog post.
