CORONADO, CA - For one couple, what's waiting on the other end of a rainbow may be worth more than a pot of gold. I would be a priceless engagement photo.

"Full rainbow completely over the top of the Hotel Del. It was just absolutely remarkable," said photographer Dan McGeorge.

Dan captured the breath-taking photo of a rainbow stretching over the Hotel del Coronado on the beach in Coronado, California. Through the lens, the view is quite vast, but there's more to what meets the eye.

After loading the photos onto his computer, Dan realized his true picture-perfect moment.

"There to my surprise was this couple, and they were clasping their hands, looking at each other and I knew I had captured them right in the moment of their proposal," Dan recalled.

Just as surprising, Dan recognized the couple from the day before when they coincidentally asked if he could take their photo with their phone just moments after becoming engaged.

Dan said, "I didn't have a clue. The ones I took were closeups, smile, 1-2-3 there! Then I wished them well and congratulations and they went on their way."

Help Find the CoupleAfter realizing this was the same pair of lovebirds, he posted the photo online hoping to find the couple and give them a framed canvas print for Valentine's Day.

Within a day the photo's been shared more than a thousand times on Facebook. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this priceless moment might leave the couple speechless.
