Mist Rainbow

Uploaded by: 2620

Sunday August 29, 2010

Niagara Falls, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This photo was taken at about 3,000' altitude (AGL) from behind the brink of the Horseshoe Falls while overflying in a Piper Saratoga. The American Falls is on the far right. The colors of the spectrum only showed up for several seconds, then disappeared. The angle of the sunlight striking the droplets of mist needs to be very precise to form the rainbow of colors.

Wow! Giant's eye view of Niagara falls. I can imagine the big fellow, after having walked a long way, sitting down with his butt in the river on top and his feet in the roiling waters below cooling them for awhile.

Beautiful perspective! So great you caught the rainbow affect. I missed my one minute chance at the Rogue river Gorge a couple weeks ago. By the time I had my camera on and set, it was gone.

I live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a beautiful part of the United States with scenic ancient mountains, beaches, bays, woods, and rivers all within a day's drive or flight. The Appalachians are not as high and rugged as other younger ranges, but they hold their own stark beauty. Many of my photos were taken while traveling. Thanks to all WunderPhoto viewers who send email -- I love to hear from you! Be safe...help people. GO SKYDIVING FOR FUN AND EXCITEMENT!!
