In many ways, this view of Lower Yellowstone Falls has superior lighting as compared to the one that I shot the previous day (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/30677/). In particular, and thanks to the tip from professional photographer Roger Devore (www.devorephoto.com Will open in a new tab or window), who was set up immediately to my right, there's a particular optical effect visible here that only happens for a brief window each day. Can you find it?

    Great Gigapan Ron. The Rainbow colors below the falls might be the optical effect you mention. I also identified the Eagles nest in my Gigapan taken here www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id= 29725but I did not see the two white spots that could be eggs. You have a slightly different angle in both of your Gigapans than mine. By the way, there appears to be a bird (Eagle or Osprey) on the nest in your first Gigapan the day before.
