Acadia's Snowy Heart

Saturday's snow storm drew me to Ocean Drive first thing Sunday morning. We were literally the second car behind the Acadia Park Service plow truck. Fresh snow - no tracks! I stopped at this outcropping because of the snow drifts. Eye to the viewfinder, composed the shot and didn't notice the heart formed by the melting snow until I reviewed the image for exposure. About a minute later the area around the heart starting melting and the heart was no more. What good fortune to arrive when the snow had melted just enough to form a heart shape. Brenda thinks it has something to do with 'Valentine's Day Weekend'.
