This hole in the ground is found along the Oregon coastline in Siuslaw National Forest. Best viewed from a distance, the process seen in this shot actually makes it quite hazardous. At low tide it shows up as nothing but a hole in the ground, but when the high tide is right or there are storms kicking waves in, the ocean can live up to the anger of its namesake.
Michael was shooting the scenery as we hiked, looking for the spot with the best light. We saw the first section of Kentucky Falls, the water beating down on the rocks below it. We decided to push on and try the lower fork falls instead.
