Remembering Heart Lake

"To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment." -Jane Austen

I took this shot up in the ADK at Heart Lake last year while on a road trip with my parents. They had never been to the ADK (which I love) and I then drove them to Canada. As we hiked around the lake I was struck by this rock poking out above the ripples of the lake. I loved the dichotomy between the beautiful, soft, flowing ripples of the water and the lonely stoic rock. I love moments like these because nature can show you the simplest things and we find it beautiful.
