Cook's Chasm

Being a native of Lincoln County, Oregon, I always love coming back to the coast to photograph this amazing place. This particular image was made at Cooks Chasm near Yachats. The rocks here are the remnants of an old lava flow, and the power of the ocean has carved this narrow cleft in the rock. Waves thunder off the sides like timpani drums, making it a very unique spot, both visually and aurally. And, making it even cooler, if you turn 180 degrees from this vantage point you'll find yourself just a few meters away from the popular Thor's Well. As always, you have to keep an eye on the tide, which makes visits like these pretty darn interesting.

Thanks for taking a peek at my work!
