Hi all!

It's not Christmas yet, neither New Year. There's no anniversary to celebrate in my calendar, no special event. It's just tuesday... A good reason to make this day particular and to tell anybody who wants to read and to hear it that I love you!

The picture was taken on the way to the mountain cabin Prarochet (~2600 m). You reach this cabin from the Sanetschpass (2251 m) after a short walk (~1,5 h) through a marvellous landscape of mattock. A lovely heart welcomed me on that hiking tour.

Kind regards

I saw a pancake sell on eBay the other day because someone thought they saw Jesus and Mary in it. 350 dollars. For enough money I would see anything, but this one is pretty obvious and it was a cleaver eye that saw it. An excellent image Markus. I am glad you are back.

Hi Markus,

wonderful idea, excellent sharpness, the nature speaks us

Well done!

Hi Markus,
well seen that man! This is great, i love it. I'm always fascinated when nature accidentally takes the form of something we recognise as artificial. Lovely sharp detail and excellent exposure. Truly a 'heart of stone'.

Bonjour Markus,
Il semble que les pierres te parlent. C'est comme si les pierres te transmettaient des histoires. Ici un coeur pour nous dire l'amour de la Nature. Il me semble un peu torturé, mais peut-être j'interprète.Image peu conventionnelle et surprenante. Et si tu nous aimes un peu, tant mieux pour nous ;-)
Bonne journée

Hi Markus

What a nice perspective of life in general! One donesn't need a special occasion to tell another "i love you"...and this picture says it perfectly!
You did great to look at the small elements, too, not only the great sight from up there (which i'm sure it was something, too). Sometimes it's the small things that have a bigger impact, and such is the case here - in this photo, but also in love :)
Simple yet detailed, not too many colors yet a great tonal contrast, great light and composition!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Markus,
A well seen capture of this heart shape natural rock carving. Excellent composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Markus

Well observed and very well captured - great framing and exposure.


hello markus,
well seen and captured shot, one should have great imaginary power to visualise and capture these kind of shots ( like bob shannon and yourself).
well done,
tfs & regards

This is an unusual rock formation. A sign of love is always welcome. It is a nice sharp, well exposed image. Thanks for sharing it and the good thoughts.

Evelynn : )

Originalidad y sensibilidad Markus al saber ver y plasmar las formas de esas rocas que evocan al
amor. Diferente y preciosa toma.

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi Tejedor

It is so wonderful to look and see. It is so great to use camera and show everybody that sometimes nature gives us so small but wonderful presents like clouds in a form of different animals, like flowers in the stone, like the heart sign in the mountain. Maybe you saw the heart of nature?

Belle trouvaille. Bien vu.
Bonne journée.

Hi Markus!
What a great rock formation! Nature can create the most wondeful art! And very clever of you to spot it and compose such a lovely picture!
My wife thought it was such a lovely photo! And a very kind note as well, it made me happy!
Thank you for using a photo to awake kind emotions in all of us! That is the power of a good image!

Surprising shape. Indeed very lovely.

Hi Markus,
Sometimes nature can really surprise us with beauty. This is pure evidence of such a wonderful surprise. The clasic human heart shape is so well visable in this rock formation that it almost looks like a creative mind was at work.
Very well seen and perfectly captured. And we all should harvest a little more love in this hard world.

A unique capture Markus, most unusual..
Excellent detail and the light has added a nice 3D look :)
Great post & TFS!

Hi Markus!

I think you usually prefer smooth surfaces more than these sharp and hard ones, but even in this surface you found what makes it "melt", to be "soft" in a way while the material remains the same.
Fantastic to imagine how much time was needed for this hearth to come to this shape!
Even real hearth breakers would get confused here :)


Very original shot with nice colors and exposure. Well seen, Yvonne

Hi Markus,
great finding and great discovery too.
So I respond to this shot on 14 Feb.
It is from you to you, from you to your family.
Hope everything will be at its best at all times.


Dear Markus ,
What a nice shot and what a great name for this.

Really is lovely shot.

Kind regards my dear friend
