Light broken down

Yosemite falls rainbow

A little over 300 miles north of Downey, just off the California 99, is Yosemite National Park. We took some time off and stayed there this past weekend. This is Lower Yosemite Falls. Above this, out of view, is Upper Yosemite Falls and the middle cascades. The entire falls is 2,425 feet tall.

I was lucky enough to be there when the sun was hitting it so that a rainbow was produced from the mist. A rainbow is white light separated into its wavelength parts. In this picture I think I can see the red, yellow, blue, and violet colors. Somewhere in there is also orange, green, and indigo.
