9. Horsetail Fall, Yosemite National Park, USA

The waterfall is seasonal – it only falls in winter and spring. But the unique effect – when the setting sun illuminates the waterfall and makes it look like fire – is even rarer. The photographers who want to picture the Firefall have to be very patient, because the weather conditions can change and obstruct the sunset. They also look for the various spots to take a picture and capture the fall from the various angles.
