Sorry to be late for Friday’s photo caption contest post. A flu bug knocked me down for a week or two, and my to-do list kept growing. (Next year…getting a flu shot!)
Last week’s winning caption goes to Sheila Smith: “No thank you, I don’t want my windshield washed.”
This week’s photo is a “firefall” taken at Yosemite’s Horsetail Falls.
During late February, IF the skies are clear, and IF there is enough melting snow on the waterfall, then nature provides tourists with a special gift. For just a few minutes each evening, as the sun hits the waterfall, it creates an appearance of fire flowing over the falls. Lava-like.
Photographers from all over come to capture the February firefall. One fellow said that there’s lots of excitement as everyone sets up, then as the sunlight moves and reflects off the water, a hush covers the crowd.
Here’s my request for this beautiful, rare Yosemite firefall: what Bible verse would you caption it with?
Please leave in comments, and I’ll pick one to win a signed book.

He hath made everything beautiful in his time…Ecc. 3:11
Love this, Carrie!
God looked at everything He had made, and He was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came-that was the sixth day. Genesis 1:31
Alicia…I’ve wondered how long it took man to notice the firefall! Perfect Bible verse for it.
Such a beautiful picture. These verses came to mind.
Psalm 18:28 “For it is you who light my lamp; the LORD my God lightens my darkness.”
John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
So glad you added those, Erika, and brought out the parallel of light and God.
“And I will shew wonders
in the heavens
and in the earth,
and pillars of smoke.”
Jo! I haven’t read that verse before…love it!
“Truly the light is sweet, And it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun;”
Ecclesiastes 11:7 NKJV
Oh Rachel…what a fitting verse!
17 The sight of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel.
Exodus 24:17 (NKJV)
Deuteronomy 10:21 21 He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.
My caption is DANIEL 3:25
THE HEBREW CHILDREN WERE IN THE FIRE KING LOOKED INTO THE FIRE AND SAW A FOURTH MAN THROUGH THIS THE KING BECAME A BELIEVER IN THE SON OF GOD THEY CAME OUT OF THE FIRE NOT BURNT OR THERE HAIR NOT SINGED
