Another year, another moonbow. This year seems not as good as last. Not as much water, and the moon was a little dimmer because of high clouds in the area.I had to wait 'til 1:30am to get this shot.

I actually thought that Thursday night was better. There was good color by 10PM.

Beerguy- Nice shot. I think you're right. Thurs probably was better. On Sat I had to contend with high clouds behind Glacier Point plus the falls were winding down after the fast snow melt of the past weekend. Oh well- there's always next year.

I usually use f8 or f5 at 30sec or less ,iso 200. I vary time and orientation. I normally get these from the meadow in front of the church in Yosemite Valley.

Cool! Do I need to PP to get the effect of the sky, or is this mostly SOOC?

I LOVE these pics. Thanks to everyone. I shoot there often and have looked for but never seen a moonbow -- guess the problem was I was expecting to see it with the naked eye!
