A (primary) rainbow visible in the water spray at the base of Lower Yosemite Fall waterfall in Yosemite National Park.

Photo taken in Yosemite Valley, CA, USA. Nikon FE with Nikkor 28mm at f/8, on Fuji Velvia slide film. The exposure was kept short (approx. 1/15 second) to not blur out the waterfall too much.
