Light Through The Keyhole

Like most landscape artists, I’m drawn to the special moments when the light is dramatic, moody or powerful. This is the largest rock at the outer end of Ecola Point on the north Oregon coast. The hole through it is known as the keyhole because of its shape. From the ocean surface it is probably 20 feet to the bottom of the arch. I’ve kayaked and paddled through it on a stand-up surfboard when the swell was small and the ocean glassy, but on this day, it’s dwarfed by a huge ocean swell.
