Vacation Home

Vanderbilt (1 of 1)

 Nikon D300 and Nikon 12-24 mm F/4.0 Lens – 1/400 @ f/10 – ISO 200

I wish it was my vacation home but in reality this is part of the Mediterranean style summer mansion of railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt in Newport, Rhode Island.  This is a view looking out to the Long Island Sound towards Long Island.  We were with a couple of friends that day and yes that is my wife to the left giving me dirty looks because we were told no photographs.  I loved the look of the arches and and the way the light was falling on the floor, so I had to squeeze one shot off, oops 🙂

This is the entryway into the courtyard at the Cornelious Vanderbilt Mansion and estate in Centerport, Long Island.  the black marks on the top of this image are because of restoration work being done above this entry on the bell tower.
