Random Beauty: Firefall at Yosemite

Random Beauty, Thumbs Up

Each February, if conditions allow the seasonal Horsetail waterfall in Yosemite National Park in California to flow, the waterfall appears to be set ablaze by the setting sun. And it’s simply breathtaking!

The event is known as the firefall (apparently as homage to Yosemite Firefall). This photo was posted by Jay Huang on Flickr (CC BY 2.0). Thank you for sharing, Jay!

Random Beauty: Fog Fingers in California

Random Beauty

Italian photographer Lorenzo Montezemolo took this shot of fog slowly rolling over the landscape in Marin County, California:

Fog fingers, Marin County, California. Lorenzo Montezemolo.

The view is from Mt. Tamalpais. Montezemolo used a three-minute exposure for stunning effect. Breathtakingly beautiful.

P.S. Tomorrow I’m having a follow-up round of medical diagnostics. I’d appreciate good thoughts my way.
