It is only thanks to my youngest son Ryan that I visited Martha’s Vineyard this past weekend. A culinary student at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI, Ryan landed a job for the summer in the kitchen at a private golf club on the Vineyard. So, being good parents, my wife and I sucked it up and delivered him to his new job.
It was just an overnight trip, but it still afforded plenty of time to see a good portion of the Island, get a couple of good meals and some good craft beer. And time for me to get some good photography in.
Since it was just an overnight trip, I had time for one sunset and one sunrise shoot. This shot is from sunrise at Edgartown Light. I worked my way around the lighthouse to catch the rising sun against the building. And it was lining up perfectly. What I wasn’t expecting was the lighthouse keeper to be out at 5:25am watering the plants.
Thank you, Lighthouse Keeper!
