Upper Yosemite Falls, California

This Month in Photo of the Day: 2011 National Geographic Photo Contest Images This 30-second exposure revealed a moonbow hidden in the mist at the foot of the falls. The full moon and clear sky made for a perfect photo op from the Yosemite Valley floor. (This photo and caption were submitted to the 2011 National Geographic Photo Contest.)
