Any of you fellow photographers who have shot Thor's Well, especially at High Tide, probably have an interesting story and I'm no exception!  Dangerously high tidal surges, blasting wind, salt water spray, are all a bad combination but we keep going back.  I must have been a comical site, with my 4x5 film camera flapping in the wind as I stumbled around, constantly wiping sea spray off of my lens! Gladly, I persisted until the sun had set, the other photographers had packed up and left and...the light got really warm and the wind briefly settled!  To learn more about this wonderful location on the Oregon Coast, visit my website athttp://www.mikeputnamphoto.com/new-fine-art-photograph-of-thors-well-on-the-oregon-coast

Smith Rock State Park, not far from our home in Bend, Oregon is a mecca for rock climbers and photographers alike.  This morning I watched eagles overhead and otters beneath my feet.  Not bad!  <a href="http://www.mikeputnamphoto.com" rel="nofollow">www.mikeputnamphoto.com</a>
