The USA's New England is home to some of the country's most important wetlands.  Away from the urban centers on the coast, you'll find sizeable areas of marshes, bogs, and swamps.  Some of the best wetland areas are in Maine, which is the largest (by area) and most rural of the New England states.  In this drone video by PeterBloch, you'll get a great bird's eye view of a pond which is surrounded by a quaking bog.  These Maine wetlands are critical to the healthy functioning of the eco-system of the entire region.

Point Judith Light // DJI Phantom 4 Pro


The Point Judith Light is located on the west side of the entrance to Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island as well as the north side of the eastern entrance to Block Island Sound. The confluence of two waterways make this area busy with water traffic and the waters around Point Judith are very cold and dangerous. While there have been many shipwrecks off these coasts even with active lighthouses, it's safe to assume that the toll would have been far larger without them.
