Lunar Rainbow – Upper Yosemite Falls

by Ellie Stone

A Nighttime shot... it is very bright & looks like day, but check out the stars in the sky. That full moon, not only provides a lovely rainbow in the mist, but on a long exposure, it illuminates the granite too! Making this, the night, that appears as day. Canon 5D MRKII 24-105mm @ 73mm ISO 1,000 f/4 1 exposure of 25 sec.
