How Not to Shoot Thor's Well

So this summer, whilest idling planless in San Fracisco, I decided to try and replicate one of the epic shots of Oregon's Thors Well that I see plastering the internet.

 

That was the extent of my planning. I had a smart phone to lead me there, and hope that I would get there in time for an epic sunset.

 

Instead, I showed up during a stormy gray evening, and spent the entire evening getting blown over by wind and water. Ended up killing two camera lenses and my 5D Mark ii. Wasn't too sad, I have them ensured (DO IT IF YOU HAVE 40$ TO SPARE!!!). I was soaked, frozen, and a little terrified after spending an evening alone on the storm blasted rock, and didn't even get a halfway decent shot of the well. But it was still an adventure, and now I know better for next time!
