Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

Nature does some pretty great framing on its own.  Just think how creatively we can see the world through wind-carved arches in Utah or a grove of trees in Cades Cove, Tennessee, or a pile of rocks on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland.  But man comes up with unique frames of his own sometimes.

Make your own art with this ironwork frame on Great Island Common at New Castle Beach, NH.

Like this one on Great Island Common in New Castle Beach, New Hampshire.  It’s meant for picture-taking.

Whaleback Lighthouse -- suitable for framing!

And why not?  A rocky beach, the Piscataqua River, and Whaleback Lighthouse — I’d frame this scene, too!

    I love New Castle! I’d love to be there when there is an artist painting a picture of the framed scene.

  6. I’ve taken this same photo several times myself. It may be the smallest town in NH, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful. 🙂 When were you at New Castle? It is only about 20 minutes from home. 🙂

    • We decided to see Portland on our way up to Vermont. Stayed at Martin Hill Inn — so quaint and grounds would be lovely in spring, or so we think. We were there right after the Boston Marathon, so not much was in bloom. But we loved this park that the manager of a card shop in Portsmouth told us about. You live in an absolutely beautiful area!!!
