Sunset-gazing at Brenton Point State Park

I've been itching to do some astrophotography lately, so my boyfriend and two of our closest friends went to Newport, Rhode Island to catch some stars. I've been studying light pollution maps to see the best places for long night exposures and the Newport area is surprisingly low! Unfortunately, we picked a day with a crazy amount of cloud cover, so stars weren't an option, but the sunset was incredible. We packed up a cooler and brought some dogs for the grill, then stayed to watch the sky.
