Photographer Captures Rare Yosemite Falls Rainbow Phenomenon


In 2017, Utah-based landscape photographer Greg Harlow captured a rare and beautiful phenomenon in Yosemite National Park. Standing at Glacier Point, he was able to capture Yosemite Falls “turning into” a rainbow: a phenomenon that only happens at certain times of year and under certain circumstances.

Harlow captured real-time video, time-lapse, and photographs of the event from his vantage point using a 200mm lens. You can see the real-time footage above, and the time-lapse footage below:

Finally, here is a full-frame still photo from the same shoot:

As stunning as this footage and photo are, it’s far from Harlow’s only beautiful landscape image. To see more of his work, head over to his website or give him a follow on Instagram.

And if you want to see more beautiful (and rare) natural phenomenon from Yosemite, check out some of the photos we’ve featured from the famous “fire fall”, or the rare “moonbows” that photographers have been known to chase around Yosemite.
