Rainbow photos are a dime a dozen, the Moonbow photos are much harder to come by.
There are only two locations you might see the phenomenon: Kentucky & Yosemite.
Seeing & taking photos are Yosemite Moonbow is one of the most challenging assignments.
You only have three days of during which the moon and Yosemite Falls line up, you can not have cloud, rain or snow. Also when the 8~ 10 feet snowpack melts, the fall water volume swells to a gigantic size.
When that amount of water plunges 2400 feet from the granite mountains, it brings wind, mist, rain.
From a photography perspective, it's fairly straight forward, you prop up the tripod, ready & steady the camera to shoot.
But for anybody who has been there & done that, it's a very different experience.
As I stood in front of the Yosemite Fall last night, there were only two emotions: Awe & Feeling bless.
I was awe struck by the thundering sound of Yosemite Fall echoing throughout the valley, the non-stop thick mist spray on my hair, jacket, camera; the gusty wind that almost blew away my camera.
Yet I felt blessed to live near such a beautiful National Park to see with my own eyes the moonbow. It's a surreal sight to see the rainbow rising in front of my eyes.
Friends & friends, here is the 2019 Lower Yosemite Fall Moonbow.
