Cherry Blossom Sunrise Instameet

Last updated

When @IGDC was asked to help participate in a secret press event to announce that The Trust for Historic Preservation was identifying the Tidal Basin a National Treasure, we immediately said “Hell, yes!”

We love the Tidal Basin, we adore the cherry trees and we thought it was our duty to rally the community for a sunrise instameet to help kick off @savingplaces campaign to protect the space from rising sea levels.

If you’ve been to the Basin, then you know the best footwear is a waterproof pair. Rising sea levels and as much as $500 million in deferred maintenance threaten this 107-acre landscape, which is lined with monuments that define our nation. And each cherry tree requires about $1,000 to maintain.

It will take a village to protect this special place for generations. We hope you’ll join us as we pledge to do what we can to support the campaign.

Here are some of our favorite photos from today and more can be found at #SaveTheTidalBasin.

I’ve been documenting the tidal basin the past few months and people enjoying the cherry blossom blooms the past few days for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It’s absolutely beautiful and also in massive disrepair. The Trust is partnering with the Park Service, other organizations, and YOU to help save it. #Repost from @savingplaces using @RepostRegramApp – The National Mall Tidal Basin is a part of America's front yard and a true National Treasure. However, rising sea levels and as much as $500 million in deferred maintenance threaten this 107-acre landscape, lined with monuments that define our nation. Join us and @thenationalmall to ensure the Tidal Basin is preserved for future generations. Head to the link in our profile to take the pledge today.

Early morning sunrise meetup! @igdc hosted a photowalk this morning…partnering with @savingplaces and @thenationalmall to help Save the Tidal Basin. This is just a small amount of the people who came out to support. Got some awesome shots, and I can’t wait to go through and edit some today! But I wanted to put this out for the @igdc people. Thought it was a cool look. 😎 it’s also always a good time when I get to see and hang out with some of my favorite photographers. Those who couldn’t make it, we missed you. . . . . #Sikimagery #rsa_nature #kings_flora #flowerporn #tgif_nature #flowerstalking #awesome_photographers #global_hotshotz #photowalk #magicpict #dream_image #fisheye #washingtondc #exposeddc #igdc #mydccool #acreativedc #canonphotos #canoneos #dctography #visitwashingtondc #cherryblossoms #cherryblossomfestival2019 #cherryblossomfestival #dcchasers #springblossomshere #SaveTheTidalBasin #bluehour #sunrise #martinlutherking

Nothing better than spring morning’s at the Tidal Basin…grabbed the sunrise from one of my favorite cherry trees…if you’re one of the thousands to flock down there every spring you’ll notice the beauty of a morning sunrise but you can’t also help but notice that the Tidal Basin is showing signs of real wear and tear…I’ve really noticed it quite a bit this year. It’s still amazing but it could use a little love. So I’m glad that today’s #IGDC Instameet with the National Trust for Historic Preservation kicks off the campaign to Save the Tidal Basin. The Tidal Basin was named a National Treasure of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

A little different shot on the feed today as I wanted to show the enjoyment of so many people this time of year at the Tidal Basin for Cherry Blossom Season. It was another beautiful morning with @igdc and @savingplaces at the Tidal Basin which was named a National Treasure of the National Trust of Historical Preservation today. With the raising sea levels, @thenationalmall needs your support to help preserve the basin.
