Every year I look forward to photographing the phenomenon of last light on Horsetail Fall. There is always an element of luck involved. The waterfall only drains about 300 acres so if it has been a dry winter, it will not happen. If it is too cold then there won't be enough snowmelt. The winter of 2017 had it all. It was warm, wet, with copious amounts of snow, and had more water flowing than I had ever seen before. It was a windy evening and the light was glorious as it caught the spray blowing back over the rim.
