Delicate Arch with Rainbow

So you are probably thinking I "lucked out" with this shot... but that's not entirely true. Using the new "Rainbow Finder" app on the iphone made this shot fairly straight forward, the way it works is that whenever iphone users see a rainbow they all point at it with there iphones, and it triangulates the location of it based on all the iphones locations, then sends this info to XM's weather radio satellites which then transmit the information to my cessna's satellite weather system... I then wrote some custom software that puts the plane on autopilot to the exact jump location, and when the light goes green I jump out and land right at the spot where I can get this kind of perfect rainbow shot...
