Notes

This is a "stacked" star trails image of 53 30-second images, an approach that makes it easier to remove airplanes and vehicle headlights.

Description

Every spring I make an annual migration to Yosemite National Park, to capture rainbows at night by the light of the full moon.

The history of this shot goes back many years, it's what I was going for when I got an image on the October 2011 cover of Outdoor Photographer... that time without the moonbows, due to an incoming storm. Spring weather often creates challenges, but I still had the concept in my mind, so eventually everything came together for me to pull it off.
