Nice use of fence as a leading line. Carol and I were headed there last summer but we never got out of old town Newport.

Very nicely shot! I like the fence line, and the way you managed to 'remove' all the tourists behind the tall grass in your sightlines... When we visited this summer, my best shot was from up the access road, with the rocks and hillside wildflowers. I never did find a framing that got rid of the cars

Thanks Fenwoodian! I was happy to see a clear sky, it is often socked in.

Thanks Dave. I actually didn't get to see old town Newport. We came down from the north and turned around at the lighthouse.

I really like your shot even with the parking lot. It is great with the wildflowers.

Nice photo. The last time I was there, the best I could do is a shot of one of the windows...too many people walking around.
