Why are these waves white?: The 'Churn Collection' is part of Jason Lawrence Olive's continuing 'Oregon Coast' series. These images were captured at a geographical landmark, located within the Suislaw National Forreset, named 'The Devil's Churn'. Jason created his photographic study of 'The Churn' during the epic winter storm of 2008. The storm was reported to be the biggest storm surge to strike the coast in 50 years. A dangerous undertaking, Jason shot the aptly named area for 3 days during record wave heights of over 40 feet.
The basalt lava nature of the Churn's rocks, turns these enourmous waves into pure white froth, reaching over 60 feet high. 'The Churn' has rarely been seen under these conditions. These images, as with all of Jason's collection works, are not digitally manipulated unless specifically indicated.
