The moon bows are invisible to the naked eye, except for a white arch that may display faint color. But take a photograph, using nighttime settings and you might be surprised by a rainbow! I recommend 30 seconds ƒ2.8 and ISO 100, on a tripod and using a cable release. If you can manage 25 seconds there will be less movement in the stars.
I was surprised by a double moon bow in the image below.
Here are a number of different photographs that were taken during the May full moon last weekend.
And some night shots taken by the light of the moon.
And some shots taken before the sun set. The first is a vertoram of Bridalveil Falls.
And, how about a few Pileated Woodpeckers from the campground.
Few words and many images.
Back to the high country and the campground! As you can see, life is good in Yosemite National Park.
