Martha’s Vineyard – Gay Head point

This post is the last of a series on Martha’s Vineyard, an island off the coast of Massachusetts made famous by its early settlement and long history, its wonderful beaches, and for its long being the playground of the rich and famous.

The entire series of photographs comprise five postings: 1) gingerbread cottages, 2) villages, 3) beaches, 4) by the water, and, 5) Gay Head point. The ‘Like’ button is only on the first set; that way you are free to enjoy the pictures at your leisure but will not need to keep coming back to ‘like’ them one over the other.

Gay Head point

Located on the southwestern end of the island, this point has an incredible beach and high bluffs.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

    • Thank you very much for your kindness. It was a beautiful place and luckily, down on the beach, more cut off from the ‘touristy’ atmosphere that can pop up in highly visited places. It was a great way to finish the day!

    • Oh, I agree! There is something about a wind lashed tree or a dune sculpted mound, or a low scraggy bush that calls to me. Fun to visit, great to photograph!

    • Graham, I am with you 100% on that one! I remember struggling to get the camera out and ready to catch the shot after the lady left us, but I knew as she was walking away it was a moment to catch! 🙂

    • More than that, thank you for dropping by and taking the time to look! It’s curious that you use the word ‘calming’ because on the one hand it was a very hectic day, while on the other it was so very, very relaxing. So yes, it was calming. 🙂
