Colt State Park Estuary Bristol RI
Narragansett Bay

Colt State Park is a gem nestled in the crown of Bristol, Rhode Island on the shore of Narragansett Bay.  It was created by a rich fellow named Colt who made a ton of money on the backs of the people, but who was nice enough to give some of it back in the form of this park.  What I remember from that day was the color of the grass in the extraordinary light that cascades down in the hour before sunset on a crystal clear fall day.

More About Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation.  Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
