p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Thor's Majesty


I am so gravitated to this spot on the Oregon coast, called Thor's Well. Water shoots straight up this hole and waves come crashing in on either side of you. It's a dangerous, adrenaline-pumping experience.
Tides were particularly dangerous this day. In fact, the risk became a reality when a big wave came in and knocked me and my camera down. I was in full waders, but I was no match for the force of the surf.

I had one of my tripod legs wedged in between a couple rocks to keep the tripod stable. I was easily withstanding water that would come up to the knee. But the force of the wave (probably a little over waste high) bent my tripod's leg to a 45 degree angle and knocked me over. I've never experienced anything like it.

Fortunately I just scuffed my knee, and besides that, there was no major equipment damage.

I was lucky to get such wave action and a big sky to go along with it.

One of the best Thors Well shots I have seen, I have a couple of my own. You caught a great sky.

Nice image.

It's worth a new tripod.

I echo Ben's statement of this being one of the best Thor's well shots I've seen. Nice work!

Now that's spectacular. You are definitely a risk taker. Sorry about the tripod. Hope it can be repaired.

Cheers,
Ed

Great shot, the cloud on the right side on the horizon is distracting & makes the image seem not level, not much you can do about that though.
