This Weekend’s Hashtag Project: #WHPthroughthetrees

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This weekend several countries around the world will celebrate Arbor Day, a holiday dedicated to planting and caring for trees. In honor of this 141-year-old tradition, the goal this weekend is to capture photographs through trees. Some tips to get you started: look for sunlight breaking or fog rolling through trees, beautiful scenery like a beach or mountains just beyond tree branches, or try your hand at portraits of a friend standing next to tall tree trunks.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the hashtag #WHPthroughthetrees to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
