The Quest For Thor's Well
Tuesday 17 January 2012 — Category: Outings
stunning photo of Thor’s Well at the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, only two-hours’ drive from my house, I wondered why I had never visited there, seeing it was so close.
In mid-January, when an extra high tide was occurring at mid-morning, and there was also a storm high surf advisory, and there was no rain, I realized that it was the perfect conditions for making the trip. With the turbulent sea slamming against the coastal volcanic rocks, I was able to get some great shots.
After searching for Thor’s Well, and then talking to the park rangers, I finally located it. But because it was at the end of a rocky tide pool peninsula, I didn’t have the courage to defy the roaring sea to take photos close up, like other photographers have done. Instead, I settled for using my longest telephoto lens, and shooting from the top of the cliffs. You can see all 34 photos in the Cape Perpetua 2012 photo album.
