Cherry Blossoms in 360°

For those who aren't able to make it in person this year, here's a 360° interactive video I shot early this morning at several spots around the Tidal Basin.

For those who aren’t able to make it in person this year, here’s a 360° interactive video I shot early this morning (March 26, 2016) at several spots around the Tidal Basin. It’s not quite like being there, admittedly, but at least the parking is easier. This was taken right around and just after sunrise, before the crowds really built up.

If you’re wondering, this was shot with a Ricoh Theta S camera, a nifty little camera that has two lenses that when combined shoots 360° panoramic still images, timelapse, and video. I’ve been using them for a while, and I’ll be posting an in-depth review of it soon on my main site.

So take it for a spin.

Want to Help Support DC's Cherry Trees?

If you'd like to help support the care and upkeep of the cherry trees around the Tidal Basin, the Trust for The National Mall has launched an Endow a Cherry Tree Campaign. Donations go to the official Cherry Tree Endowment, which will give the National Park Service additional resources to fund the care, maintenance, and possible replacement of the cherry trees. You can find more information here.

The Trust is dedicated to marshaling private support for maintaining and improving the history National Mall area. I'm not affiliated with the Trust--just an admirer of their efforts.
