|Hearts in Nature|
- all found on Fair Isle in the past year.
For the past 6 years since moving to Fair Isle I have gone for a walk on Valentine's Day with my camera and photographed natural occurring heart shapes. I would Share these images by email or on Facebook with friends & family as a sort of Valentine's Day card. Now with my blog I can share photos with a wider world. No apologies for the puns... it's all part of the fun for me. I did set up the first & last photos, the stone is unaltered as are the rest of the photos. This year I have collected images as I have sporadically seen them though out the year. I hope you enjoy them and please share with your friends. I will still go out on Valentines Day and add a few more images to this post. cheers Tommy
|Your love Rocks!|
|That's a lovely sediment...|
|Limpets in Love|
The Limpet's constant clinging and sucking slowly causes erosion to the stone.
|Limpets really leave a lasting impression.|
Love on the rocks
|I don't just Lichen you... I'm Love'n you!|
|We got you covered... Lichen or not.|
|Moss be Love!|

Today while walking I found a few more Hearts...
Moss & Lichen Covered Stone
|Weeds in the ditch with red iron silt.|
|I have seen plenty of Lichen hearts before, but this one looks to have Cupid's arrow as well.|
Plus 2 smaller hearts if you use your imagination.
|I stumbled upon this big one coming over the hill above the golf course's 4th green.|
