Yosemite Falls

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 1 July 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A closer view of Yosemite Falls glowing in full moonlight with a "Moonbow". This was an incredible scene with more water flowing over the falls than we've seen in many years.

well...nice...very nice...
I never knew that there is such a thing called "moonbow "...or a rainbow generated by the moon light...
If there were no stars in this image, I would not even be able to tell it is taken during night time

A spectacular image which looks nothing at all like night (apart from the stars).

Wow, 22 second exposure... did you use a tripod? Just kidding. ;-) Lovely shot.

I still never tire of seeing this image Scott. I would say you covered that moonbow from every conceivable composition - from wide to tight and they all look good.

Wow! The power of the water is incredible, and the moonbow is so neat! Fabulous detail in the rock, too! This is excellent, Scott!

Absolutely stupendous Scott. I so strongly agree with the others. And the image, as it s composed and exposed, provides us really with not one, but two moonbows. Talk about getting more aestheic bang for your buck! One of my favorite factors of this beautiful image is the fact that the presence of that moonbow in it's "two-fer" state, helps to draw the eyes to the magnificent detail of the rocky cliff just behind. There is no way that anyone could get tired of looking at this image except for maybe some stupid politician who wants to stop funding for the National Parks...oops, sorry, I let my politics show, but hey, that's what Independance Day should be about! Beautiful, Scott!
