We didn’t ever really find a great sunrise shooting location. At the south end of town there is a nice harbor area called Brenton Cove. Brenton Cove houses a private yacht club, the Newport Sailing School, and Historic Fort Adams.. There is a nice path that borders the water there and runners, bikers and walkers are a pretty common sight. While we were not going to capture the sun coming up under the bridge here, we did know we were going to get some nice light, on some nice “marine” subjects, including boats, the bridge, and things related.
The little jetty that goes out from the street into the harbor holds a public dinghy dock. It made a nice lead in for a panorama I made in the bright early morning sun.
There is also The Newport Public Sailing Center. As we talked to local residents, it is apparently a pretty common thing for young people to learn to sail in Newport. Go figure. 🙂
I had visions of a sunrise shot of the bridge from this vantage point, off the grounds of Fort Adams, but it wasn’t to be.
