Twin Rocks

Twin Rocks

Art on ArcheanWeb: Part of the West Coast Shorelines Series

An art exposé of Rockaway Beach, Oregon would not be complete without addressing the Twin Rocks. These two 100 foot tall monuments sit just offshore from pristine sand beaches. The rocks are eroded remnants of resistant basalts that were originally emplace about 15 to 20 million years ago. The volcanic activity forming these rocks was associated with the larger Columbia River Flood basalts, which cover much of northern Oregon. The formation on the left is known as an arch and the one on the right is a stack.

This work is based on a series of photos taken in 2020 and was created in 2021 using three separately processed images.
