Thor’s Well – A Gate to the Undersea

26 March 2010 23 Comments

Many people, I believe even the locals of Oregon do not realize the existence of an amazing nature place called Thor’s Well. Located at Cape Perpetua, Oregon, the surf surge rock without doubt is very unique. In any event, it makes a great photo. It occurs at a moderate to high tide with strong surf. While I think it is best photographed near sunset, I’m sure good photos of it could be obtained almost any time of day. However, it is not easy to take a snap of the place because of sharp rocks are everywhere. Plus, a very strong surge could sweep right up and be very dangerous. The hole can be seen from the parking area at the far end of the rock shelf on the north side of Cook’s Chasm. Following are the photos taken from very brave and dedicated photographers.

    Great article, I think you covered everything there. . . I would say freelancing is quite hard especially if you are not used to working on your own, can be quite hard to motivate yourself also.

    Looks like this site copied and pasted the text directly from the website of the guy who discovered Thor’s Well.
