Rainbow on Bridalveil Falls

Just as we showed up to Tunnel View to shoot the timelapse of the sunset, I looked ahead at Bridalveil Falls to see a multi-coloured rainbow emanating from the 180-metre high waterfall.

I often think that capturing beautiful things in nature is 50% about putting yourself into the environment to witness beauty, and 50% about waiting and hoping for a serendipitous moment to arise by chance.

This photograph is a testament to this strategy and I'm extremely grateful for having witnessed this during my short stay in Yosemite National Park.

The photo was taken on the Nikon Z6 using the Nikon 85MM 1.8G - my settings for this image were 1/8000, f / 2.8, ISO 100.
