This photo was taken from Hazard Road which bisects the back end of Gooseneck Cove in Newport, RI.  The road figured prominently in the recent environmental restoration of the cove by Newport and Rhode Island's Save the Bay organization.  Tidal flow was increased with a new culvert and the phragmites grass which had nearly choked the life from the east end of the cove was reduced to near zero.  We had fun taking the photo and met an interesting array of local folks as they enjoyed the cove's newly restored beauty.

This panorama was taken in Narragansett Bay

This is an overview of 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.
