Abyss

Paid a visit to Cape Perpetua along the Oregon coast this weekend and had a blast playing on the rocky shoreline. This is not an area for the weak of heart, as the waves crash against the rocky cauldrons with amazing power and sends bursts of water high into the sky. I did my best to try and time the waves, so I could run like a wild man snap a few shots then run back to a safe dry perch and avoid the big waves and ensuing downpour of cold ocean water. I wasn’t very good at timing anything and provided great, albeit dangerous, entertainment for onlookers that were watching sunset, high & dry from above. In the end, I got soaked, I mean totally soaked from head to toes, from scary thigh high incoming tides, to super blasts of cold salt water falling from the sky. This area really demonstrates the power of Mother Nature and the unpredictability of her furry!

 

I hope everyone had a great weekend and I look forward to viewing all of your streams!!
