Tunnel View has been photographed a billion plus times, and who can resist getting a shot (or hundreds) for themselves? We just rolled into Yosemite and this was the first stop before heading into Yosemite Valley. I got out of the car to go take it all in, and just grabbed my camera with no tripod. Right when I got about half way across the parking lot, the rainbows popped out so I quickly made my way to the rock wall and propped down my camera to stabilize it, and captured around ten photographs before the rainbows disappeared. They were only visible for around 4 minutes. I recently reprocessed this image and tried to get the best detail and quality out of it as possible since it was shot with a Canon Rebel T1i and an 18-55mm EF lens back in May of 2010.
