Another image from my recent marathon trip to Yosemite National Park. This is an HDR image, not that it really needed to be or that you can tell., but the rainbow in the mist of the falls is the best I've captured to date, enjoy.

NOTE:This is actually Bridalveil Falls, not Yosemite Falls.

Lovely shot of Yosemite Dave. I also feel you don't need HDR here but, it still works well in the photo.

Great shot, have you tried cropping the left tree out a bit? I feel like that would pull out the color and the rainbow.

No, I would have actually liked more tree looking at it now. But the space here is limited and you get what you can.

Dave- as always, a very nice shot. However, isn't the fall pictured actually Bridalveil not Yosemite? Great job waiting for the afternoon light.

Kirby you are so right! I have shots that look so similiar from upper Yosemite Falls. I'll correct this, thanks.

Beautiful shot. Do you mind if I ask when you took it? Was it recent?
