Spouting Horn, Kauai - My Vision

Click the images to see larger views.

Spouting Horn is a blowhole on the south shore of Kauai, Hawaii. This natural water wonder is a popular tourist attraction that is often photographed quite badly, because most people visit it midday when the light is very flat and uninteresting (see for yourself in this Google search for 'Spouting Horn').

The most dramatic images of this natural water wonder come later in the afternoon or close to sunset when the sun's rays are more slanted (this gives more definition to the spray, and separates it from the ocean background and rocks). To obtain more power and height to the spray, it is also best to come at high tide.

Most of us just take "record" shots of the things we see on our vacations. However, with a little planning, you can schedule yourself to be at many locations when the odds for better pictures will be in your favor!
