I am so gravitated to this spot on the Oregon coast, called Thor's Well. Water shoots straight up this hole and waves come crashing in on either side of you. It's a dangerous, adrenaline-pumping experience. Tides were particularly dangerous this day. In fact, the risk became a reality when a big wave came in and knocked me and my camera down. I was in full waders, but I was no match for the force of the surf. Lucky for me I just scuffed my knee and there was no equipment damage.
