About the Image(s)

t=13 sec F/7,1 and ISO= 1250

It was taken in Zambia at the Victoria falls. What we can see, it is not a „normal” rainbow, it is a so called „moonbow”. A few times a year, when the water level is high, it is full moon and the sky is clear, we can see this phenomenon. In such occasions, they let you in the park and it is worth going to see how the moonlight is split into a rainbow on the „steam” of the falls.

Such a unique and mystical image! The moonbow is gorgeous and I like the shallow depth of field in the front that guides the eye to the shooting water and the top of the waterfall. You captured quite the moment that night.

Perhaps you could crop in a bit from the right and top where there isn't much happening?   Posted: 09/15/2020 08:38:51

WOW what a great phenomena and the image is beautiful. And agree with Matt, almost mystical. While in Iceland there is one waterfall that "magically " creates rainbows every afternoon and it is stunning to see. It is the mist from the waterfall that creates the rainbow along with the sun angle. Only this one happens to be from the moon. Love the shallow depth of field in the foreground. Fantastic!   Posted: 09/24/2020 10:57:26
