Surf Heart
Recently seen circulating on Twitter with the caption, "Heart glare reflection on the shores of Hawaii".


The picture was taken in Hawaii. That's true. Waikiki beach, to be specific. But the 'heart glare reflection' isn't real.

The photo is a manipulation created by DeviantArt user 'charmbuster' back in April 2008. He wrote: "an experiment... this is a slight photomanip, the shape was so close i had to make it a heart! (waikiki beach)"

It's been floating around the Internet ever since 2008. Sometimes it's titled 'sea heart' or 'beach heart'.
