Heart Rock

During my thanksgiving jaunt to Maui, I found this "Heart Rock", the first shot below.
I had myself setup, with towel over lens, tripod and everything, looked pretty serious, and trying the to time the waves.
This cute young couple quietly and politely waited behind me.
I thought, they would ask to get in and that would have been just fine with me, but instead they decided to leave and I had to shout at them to get their attention and ask if they wanted to get in on the rock.
They of course wanted to.
I stole couple of shots, and then showed them and asked if they wanted to pose. They did!
I emailed them once I got back.
I also share last one, just because it looks like "Ocean's Heart", so consistent with my "Valentine's Day" theme.

    Apparently love was in the air. I <3 the b/w shot. The splash behind is a perfect touch. No expert but I might have brought the shadows up (foreground) - still this is great! I can imagine the young couple were thrilled to receive the photos. I am sure they are going to make huge prints. Really enjoyed the pastel colors in the last and yes the circle of Whitewater definitely makes the heart !

    Thanks Anna Maria! My day is made! I have grappled with the shadows in foreground and now I know I should lift them some.....
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    What a great and heartily story :) . The first photo is great, but I favor the last one. You painted that very well. The colors, light, lines and bokeh are outstanding. PS: If nature on its own has made that heart in the rock nature is more crafty, than I thought :o

    The one who takes a joke only for a joke and seriousness only seriously he and she have got both badly. Grook by Piet Hein in my poor translation.

    Thanks so much Jorgen! Nature doesn't want to be outdone by humans! :smile:
