Nice Kirby. The bow was actually a little better on Saturday night. That said it was brighter than last month thanks to all the water.

Cheers

Beautiful photo! I had reservations at the Lodge, I should be there now, but had to cancel a few weeks ago due to a family illness. Your photo has inspired me to try again next year. Thanks for posting.

Wow! Most excellent. I would have never believed that moonlight could create a rainbow.

That's because you can't generally see it with the naked eye. It takes a long exposure to bring it out. ;)

This was the night before Kirby's shot:
