Sooke Potholes - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This panorama was taken of the Sooke Potholes in flood. The potholes themselves are full of water, and during these winter / spring months will contain rocks being spun round the bottom by the force of the water. This is a continuous process that forms and enlarges the potholes over time. Instead of visible potholes, the river provides a dramatic rapids and falls.
