To share your photos, here’s what you need to do!

First, plan your King Tides Photo shoot:

  1. Check the Calendar page to learn when the next king tide or high water event is happening!
  2. Make plans to go out as close to high or low tide as you can.
  3. Try to incorporate a vertically stable object such as a piling in the background for reference.
  4. Put a ruler in the shot! This helps us measure how high or low the water was when you took the photograph.
  5. All shots are interesting and welcome! We are particularly interested in pictures of public places that members of the general community will recognize and connect with. This will also make it possible for us to revisit these places to collect additional data.
  6. * Please remember that safety is the number one priority! Be aware of slippery surfaces, currents, and waves. Be conscious of your surroundings and the weather. Getting that special picture is not worth an injury! *

Second, share your photo with us by submitting a photo or by posting on our King Tides NC Flickr group!

This photo does a good job of including a vertical benchmark that can be used to measure how high the water reached.
