The Kid Should See This

Have you ever seen a rainbow waterfall? This silent real-time footage of a Yosemite Falls rainbow, captured by photographer Greg Harlow in Yosemite National Park, reveals the colorful phenomenon on the 1,430-foot (440 meter) upper portion of Yosemite Falls, the park’s highest waterfall at 2,425 feet (739 meters).


He explains in an Instagram post that the rainbow lasted over eight minutes around 9:15am on November 1st, 2017. “This certainly was not a planned event. I spent over 3 months total in Yosemite last year and just got lucky.”

Here’s a time lapse of the Yosemite Falls rainbow footage, too:
