This was my first stop after scoping out the best spot to shoot Thor’s Well from when I came back later for high tide. It’s also where I got drenched by the first of 3 big waves that kept me soaking wet through my day of shooting on the Oregon coast. I shot dozens of exposures here until I got the perfect flow of sea foam ribbons as waves crashed into this dangerous fissure in the rocky cliff and furiously rushed back out to sea. Positioning myself and my tripod in the fissure was tricky and dangerous with the risk of sneaker waves, which is exactly what soaked me good before I landed this shot.
