[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A rainbow often occurs at lower Yosemite Falls in the morning when the sunlight hits the mist billowing out from the falls. I was lucky enough to be there with a group of photographer friends on a good day for rainbows:)

PP: standard RAW adjustments, resized and jpegged, sharpened. I was tempted to lighten up the shadows but decided that I liked the silhouette and contrast they provide.

(I used a polarizer filter but am not able to add it to my filter list, so am noting it here.)

bonne journee

Hello Karen

Here is a rarity on TL. I like everything about it. Just beautiful. Must be a fantastic sight to come across. Awesome work.


Bonjour Karen,

Nice picture. I love the dark trees on right which contrast with the light of the rainbow. It gives the feeling that we finally got our way out of a dense forest. Very nice image, TFS.
