Description

Trying to avoid the hoards of crowds at the Sentinal Bridge parking lot I decided to try to find a more unique moonbow location in Yosemite National Park. I knew that Cascade Falls was a good spot for a moonbow and only a handful of photographers had shot it... In the afternoon weather the area was dry and pretty easy to get to. When I returned at night I was in for a shock -- the winds had picked up and were spraying mist all over the spot! I brought along a rain-shield for my camera to keep my camera dry and attached the hood to the lens helped reduce a small amount of water hitting the lens. I also brought along 5 micro-fiber cloths because I knew I'd be wiping the lens dry quite often and they would get wet fast. I had just enough time to wipe the lens clean and then take a shot before the lens was completely covered. I went through 3 micro-fiber cloths in the 35 minutes that I was out there. Once I finally returned to dry land I realized how *completely* soaked I was. It wasn't until the sun came up the next day that I was able to fully dry all my equipment!
