    Well, that must be the most splendid "first look" and by-chance vantage point of one of Yosemite's magnetic attractions without even exercising the boots! Ya, you're spoilt!

    Horsetail Falls on the opposite side of the valley from Bridalveil Falls is the one that catches the sunset and appears on fire.
    It only flows in spring near El Capitan and with less snow this year it might not even flow at all. Bridalveil Falls can produce a nice rainbow in the spray near sunset. In clear weather during full moon in May Lower Yosemite Falls produces a spectacular 'moonbow'.
    Kent,
    Nice photographs for such a short stay!

    It put on a nice display for us, but I can't remember what time we were there. We walked to the viewing area which is where the little waterproof digisnapper came in handy to at least record we stood in the mist and got wet!

    Yes, Horsetail Falls is the one that received some media coverage down here in Australia a couple of months or so back. It made fascinating reading and was accompanied by a photo with real WOW! factor jumping out.
    <sigh> and now Downunder we're getting cold in the afternoon as autumn draws to a close and winter makes it's mark. Baaaa—! Can't wait for Spring again...
