Photographing a moonbow (a lunar rainbow) requires planning, preparation, and a bit of luck. Yosemite Falls is one of only four falls in the world where one can witness and photograph a moonbow. The others are: Cumberland Falls, Kentucky; Victoria Falls, Africa; and Waimea Falls, Kauai. To learn how I captured this image, please read Photographing a Moonbow - Planning, Preparation and a Bit of Luck.
