Any advice for Yosemite moonbow shooting?
I had a nice vacation planned to Yosemite a few years ago only to have to cancel because I got one of the nastiest flu bugs I've ever had. But I did have a bookmark for shooting Rainbow Falls and other locations around the park with good chances of a shot at a rainbow. I can't find those links. But the search was something like "photography yosemite" then I followed some links from there. I know that does not help but the obvious is this search:
This could be a wonderful time of year to catch a rainbow but the sites out there can offer a lot of tips on what factors to consider. Remember too it comes down to time of day. So an app tracking sun positioning is very helpful. I use TPE for Android and it helps me guess at times and positioning as well.
Most of all have a grand time and enjoy the shots you get not the ones you hoped for and missed. Ansel Adams spent MONTHS in one spot to get a single shot and we try and compress things into what amounts to a "sound bite" of time expecting perfection. Doesn't work that way in nature.
Be aware of bear warnings as well...I've been right next to a bear trying to dismantle a VW Van in the middle of the night so I've seen it happen first hand. I was too young to be concerned just in awe of the power they possess.
