I took this photo while visiting Hammond Castle in Massachusetts. I was surprised when I heard that there was a castle in Massachusetts and I had to investigate. You can find it on the coast of Gloucester. John Hays Hammond, Jr., an inventor, erected his castle between 1926 and 1929. He lived and worked there since there was a laboratory. When I visited the castle it wasn’t open for tours, however, I enjoyed wandering around the grounds. Hammond had a great view.

Doorways make for GREAT pics! You can let your imagination run wild with a shot like this….
I love doorways…there’s so much potential for a grand adventure!
What a beautiful view… Especially to watch from inside from the door it gives a great contrast and image… I loved it so much, Thank you dear TBM, with my love, nia
Thanks Nia…there was so much outside this door I had to take a photo of it.
That is a beautiful view!
I enjoyed it! I would love to look out my window and see that every day.
Oooh, I love castles, and I love this photo because it makes me want to turn around and see what is inside that doorway too. Are you going to post more pictures of this castle?? Pretty please!! 🙂
I’m pretty sure I can manage that for you Cindy!!!
Great photo — your composition is lovely!
That’s a “I wish I would have been there too” photo 😀
I wish I was back there 🙂
Wow! What an invitation to view the water. Nice frame of door and blossoming tree.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Doors make good pictures. Add water, color, and some who knows how to photography, now you get a beautiful moment in time.
Thank you for the kind words.
It looks quite neglected now … is it lived in?
I don’t think so…during the summer it is open for tours, but I got the feeling that no one was there. Maybe someone lives there in the summertime.
A castle in Massachusetts? Who knew?? (Well–I guess you did, TBM, so thanks for filling us in on the secret!) Great shot, too. 🙂
Doesn’t it seem odd…when I mentioned I was heading this direction to a friend he told me about the castle. I had to find out for myself. Thanks!
For those of us that like doors, this is a great door picture.
Wonderful shot! I like the framing you have captured here.
What a spectacular photo!
Excellent work my friend 🙂
wow the beauty behind door/window always impresses me. love it.
I love that view…I could stare out that door all day long.
A portal to enchantment. 🙂
I like that!
Ow wow!!! Ow Wow!!! this is really good!! I love it. the way you use the door frame like that is just perfect. Love it
Thanks Novroz…your enthusiasm is inspiring!

Beautiful photograph! I love seeing your travel photos in my reader =)
Thanks Laura, that is very kind of you to say.
I could stand there for a long time and admire the lake view.
Me too, but it is bigger than a lake, it’s the Atlantic Ocean. You can hear the waves.
Love it! Sounds like it is in England – Hammond Castle on the Gloucester coast… 🙂
It does seem like it should in England or some place in Europe…but it is special to have it in Massachusetts.
