14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Cliffs of Aquinnah while viewing the Gay Head Lighthouse

This was taken on Martha's Vineyard. On this island, there's a special place left untouched by the tourists, Aquinnah. This one scene depicts the island and its natural beauty. The Gay Head Cliffs are holding a very historic lighthouse, and showing the summer green from the thick brush. The raging ocean is also seen crashing into the cliffs.
