Bridalveil Falls Rainbow

I’d positively expect to see a rainbow when hiking the Mist Trail to Vernal Falls. It is not at all unusual to see a rainbow from the spray in Nevada Falls or Yosemite Falls. But I’ve never seen a rainbow in Bridalveil Falls before.

The kids and I were hiking on the old Inspiration Point trail above Tunnel View. On our way down, I looked across the valley and saw this Bridalveil Falls rainbow.

I quickly screwed my polarizer on the end of the lens to heighten the rainbow effect and render the colors more deeply saturated. I snapped a few captures, and then the rainbow was gone.
