Yosemite's stunning 'Firefall' draws photographers and visitors to park

Yosemite has many dramatic vistas. But few are more awe-inspiring than firefall.

It's firefall season in the park, and that has attracted many photographers and others wishing to capture the scene.

The effect occurs when light from sunset hits the Horsetail Fall.

“It’s the way the sun happens to hit that causes the waterfall to glow,” Yosemite National Park Ranger Ashley Mayer told KTLA.

Here are some images posted on social media.
