Martha’s Vineyard In August; A Great Time To Photograph This Idyllic Spot
The island of Martha’s Vineyard is located just seven miles off the Massachusetts
coast. Its quaint atmosphere, beaches and proximity to Cape Cod make this area
a very popular resort destination. Martha’s Vineyard also offers a variety
of photo opportunities, ranging from multicolored cliffs to colorful cottages
and picturesque lighthouses. Whatever you choose to photograph, your images
will reflect the distinct charm of the Eastern seaboard.
Oak Bluffs: To get great shots of some of the most colorful
architecture you’re likely to encounter, visit the Gingerbread Cottages
at the famous Campground of Oak Bluffs. These cottages are located where family
tents once stood in the late 1800s during a religious revival movement. The
tents were later replaced with vacation cottages. Then the cottages multiplied,
trying to outdo one another in brightly painted gingerbread fantasies. You might
also want to check out the Flying Horses Carousel, with hand-carved carousel
horses that date back to 1876. The East Chop Lighthouse and surrounding beaches
offer more photo opportunities.
Edgartown: You’ll love photographing Edgartown’s picturesque Main Street, along with its harbor and waterfront. This seaport village has been preserved from the early 19th century, and is still one of the world’s great yachting centers. To best explore this historic community, it’s best to walk its streets. Edgartown also has an often photographed lighthouse, along with several beautiful beaches.
