Cliff Walk Golden Hour

Newport, Rhode Island

Newport, Rhode Island is a great place to visit and has something for everyone. Whether you want to tour the famous mansions, shop, sail, or visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame, it is a must visit destination. For photographers, it is a great place to shoot, especially on it's famous Cliff Walk. Cliff Walk is a 3.5 mile public access walkway that lies on Newport's eastern shore, in between the Newport mansions and the bay. In 1975, the walk was designated as a National Recreation Trail, making it the first in New England. About two-thirds of the walk is in easy walking condition. The balance is a little more challenging but not too strenuous.

This particular October morning was crisp and clear and the colors were spectacular. This composition is from the more rugged end of the walk.
