CORONADO, Calif. — A California photographer taking a photo of a rainbow on the beach unknowingly also caught a very special moment for one couple — and now he’s trying to hunt them down.
Photographer Dan McGeorge took the photo of a giant rainbow over the historic Hotel Del Coronado on Jan. 31.
He says in a post on his Facebook page that a couple ran up to him after the rainbow had disappeared, said they had just gotten engaged and asked if he’d take a photo of them with their phone.
McGeorge did so and wished them well.
Later, after developing and zooming in on his photo, he realized he captured the moment of the proposal underneath the rainbow.
Now, he’s taking on a nationwide search for the couple — so he can give them a framed canvas print of the amazing photo. He says they were not from the Coronado area.
