Imagine finding a perfectly shaped heart rock on the beach: a gift from the sea symbolizing the universal image of love, while also crystallizing the simple joys of walking by the water's edge. Inspired by these wonders of nature, photographer Amy M Dykens presents here 135 beautiful images of heart rocks in their native environment along with her words of calm introspection and an appreciation of generosity and love. Some of these treasures are heart shaped, some have a heart image through or on them, but all are precious creations.
Photographer Amy M Dykens sees and captures the world in ways that surprise and delight others. She has a degree in art from Smith College and is a successful beach, wedding, and portrait photographer on Cape Cod where she lives with her two sons.
