Residing at Cape Perpetua, there's a hole in the rocks where the waves come up and fall back in creating some beautiful water movement, and even better at sunset... This place is known as Thor's Well.

At times, it can be very dangerous with sneaker waves that cover the entire area with water. It is not uncommon for it to knock tripods over and people losing their equipment while there due to this or water splashing.

This building is part of an old abandoned mill in the small town of Vernonia.  The feeling when you step in is pretty awesome.  Has a very old ancient ruin type feel with the plant life growing inside and the open top.  Of course all of the graffiti gives it a modern touch to it's feel, but it's still great.​

Backlit Bench
