The term “King Tide” refers to the highest high tides that occur when the Earth, Moon, and Sun are aligned, and the Sun’s gravity helps tug on the oceans a little more, causing the tides to be higher. These extreme high tides give us a glimpse of what sea-level rise will look like in our region.

Each year, the NH Coastal Adaptation Workgroup invites citizens to grab their cameras and document these extreme high tides during its annual King Tide Photo Contest to raise awareness of New Hampshire’s rising tides. Photographing King Tide is an effective way to help coastal communities identify areas prone to flooding, visualize potential impacts of sea-level rise, and plan for the future.

This Lobby Gallery exhibit features the images of 10 standout photographers from the King Tide Photo Contest: David Murray, Jennifer Dubois, Kathy Motyka Lavigne, Rich Beauchesne, Rockingham Planning Commission, Samara Ebinger, Michael Drooker, Bob McGrath, Jay Steere, and Michael Kent.
