On February 18, 2010, photographer Rob Kroenert took this amazing photo of Horsetail Falls at Yosemite National Park. The falls are in a unique place during this time of year because the rays from the sunset shine on the falls and make them look like flowing lave. [via]

Rob says:

Horsetail Falls is a small seasonal waterfall that only appears in late winter and early spring. It flows over the east side of El Capitan, so as a backdrop it has one of the most impressive walls of granite in the entire park. Then – only for part of February, and only when the sky is clear – the very last sunrays of the day selectively linger on the falls, lighting it up with a golden glow that makes the water look like lava.
