Lower Yosemite Fall in the Spring, with a rainbow

In the spring at Yosemite, the waterfalls throughout the Park are well fed by the melting snows and flow with strength and beauty. If one is fortunate enough, as I was, to be at Lower Yosemite Fall on a clear day in the spring during early morning, it is not unusual to also have a rainbow. The results show in this photo. By the way, there are three Yosemite Fall: upper, lower and middle. The upper and lower are accessible; the middle is, apparently, very difficult to reach.
