Mike, the firefall picture is awesome! You earned it. It'l probably be a money maker. (Did you enhance the reds?)

From a church in Münster that was bombed rebuilt and painstaking repainted. I took this in a slightly different way, lying on my back with the camera on my chest while I held my breath:

Pentax 645Z DFA 35 f/5.6 1/15 ISO 1600

Excellent capture!

645z with 35A
Was it just the long exposure that produced the excellent separation between the clouds and lighthouse?....or some extra post-processing? Nice result!

This one was a 6 second exposure with the camera on the floor pointed up



and a 3 second one, while I was trying to get the cupola centred

Absolutely love this vantage point of the light house! Great photo.
Thanks so much. Difficult at this time of year to get a nice sky as it's been so clear. I managed to catch some clouds for a change.

No enhancement to the reds in fact, it was a deeper orange-red than my picture conveyed, but I pushed the total exposure up to show some of the surrounding rock detail and as a result lost the effect of the bright red "lava" against a field of black, which was how most people rendered it on camera to keep from blowing out the water on a single exposure.

It turns out many of the images you see posted around are faked when the effect does not occur due to clouds. On the first night I was there, the falls turned a brilliant gold and then faded out without the reddish color. The second night, it did that and then went deep orange, then faded a bit and about 10 minutes later it lit up again in an eerie red glow, which I presume to be much more rare an occurrence. I heard that the following two nights, it did not glow either.

Mine is legit.

Hey, Mike---that's a good one of this event. I've seen others that just had the water lit up, but I like the way you have caught other bits: the the orange glow on parts of the rock face, especially that bit at the top; the more subtle lighting of the rock face to the left of the lower portion of the falls; and then really cool is the light on the left side of the tree.

All those things set your image apart from a lot of the others I've seen.
thanks for looking at it so closely. You are right, because the water is generally very bright vs the rocks, a single exposure may render just the waterfall against black rocks, but i wanted to show more of the detail of El Capitan (the big granite rock face). It is thus a little lighter than the eye saw, but in my opinion makes a good take on it.

Nice! I remember a Yosemite firefall from my youth--when they weren't so rare.
very cool. I heard they used to shovel embers off Glacier Point after dark. This stopped in 1968. If they ever decide to do that for a special event, i will be there, you can bet on it!~.

The Horsetail Fall firefall is a totally natural phenomenon whereby the last red rays of sun strike just the narrow strip of water and spray, causing it to glow brightly. The conditions are right only a few days per year and require melting snow to make the fall run. This was the first year in many that there was enough snowmelt for the falls to run. Here is a link:

Way more cool and environmentally friendly than burning embers!

I've forgotten the name of this waterfall in Washington state. Franka Solida III and Fuji 160NS.

Looks like Snoqualmie Falls at very low water.
