Wide Angle: Beach at Newport Rhode Island

Wide Angle: Beach at Newport Rhode Island

I suspect most of my shots for this theme will come from our overnight trip to Newport Rhode Island. There aren’t that many opportunities for expansive vistas here in Kensington, Connecticut; but Newport is there on the ocean. We’ve been to Newport nearly every summer, usually with our younger daughter and one of her friends. We camp in Mystic CT and drive the extra 45 minutes or so into Newport. It’s hot and crowded and the sea is dotted with sailboats. Well, yesterday I celebrated my >GASP< 60th birthday, and we decided to do something special…so we booked a room in the delightful Cliffside Inn in right near the Cliff Walk. Weather reports said it would be cloudy, but they were quite wrong. There were scudding clouds and a brisk wind with temps in the low 40s–quite invigorating. This was taken with the Lensbaby Muse/wide angle lens.
