Have you ever seen a rainbow waterfall? This silent real-time footage of a Yosemite Falls rainbow, captured by photographer Greg Harlow in Yosemite National Park, reveals the colorful phenomenon on the 1,430-foot (440 meter) upper portion of the park’s highest waterfall at 2,425 feet (739 meters).
He explains in an Instagram post that the rainbow lasted over eight minutes around 9:15am on November 1st, 2017. “This certainly was not a planned event. I spent over 3 months total in Yosemite last year and just got lucky.”
