The Horsetail Fall at Yosemite National Park, United States
Horsetail fall is a small waterfall that flows over the eastern edge at Yosemite Valley National Park. For two weeks in February, the setting sun striking the waterfall creates a deep orange glow known as the “firefall” effect.
This waterfall descends in two streams side by side. The eastern one drops 470 meters (1,540 feet), and the western one 480 meters (1,570 feet).
Around the second week of February, the setting sun hits Horsetail Fall at just the right angle to illuminate the upper reaches of the waterfall.

The Giant’s Causeway, North Ireland
The result of an ancient volcanic eruption, these are perfectly straight rocks jutting out of the sea. Sixty million years ago a huge volcanic eruption spewed out a mass of molten basalt, which then solidified and contracted as it cooled, creating the cracks that can be seen today.
There are an estimated 37,000 polygon columns at this World Heritage Site, so geometrically perfect that local legend has it they were created by a giant.
UNESCO declared it as a world Heritage site in 1986. The Giant Causeway has about 40,000 interlocking columns made from basalt. The columns have a unique hexagonal shape. The columns are reminiscent of huge stepping stones. Some actually go as high 39 feet into the air.
