Perhaps the only way to fully appreciate Woods Hole’s blue ponds and long points is from the air. Peter Mangiafico, scientific informatics project leader for the Encyclopedia of Life (www.eol.org), recently got his pilot’s license and has been treating friends and family to some magnificent views during flights in a rental Cessna.
Mangiafico’s wife, Karen Casciotti, who is an associate scientist in Marine Chemistry & Geochemistry at WHOI, captured this beautiful shot of Woods Hole, with Eel Pond at center, during another flight.
