Sunset at Spouting Horn
I'd been planning to visit Spouting Horn for the whole 2 weeks I was on Kaua'i, but we kept putting it off. I'd missed Spouting Horn a decade ago the first time I visited, so I had to get here. So, around sunset of the last day on Kaua'i, just before heading for the airport, we finally made it. And I wasn't disappointed. Spouting Horn is basically just a hole in the lava rocks where the crashing surf flows through the hole or really tunnel and then jets up into the sky. Really cool! There are some mini versions of the same all around this particular area as well as what might have been a similar feature in the past which has eroded to a larger opening off to the left of the geyser you see in this picture, near the left edge of this image. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/200 seconds at f/6.3, ISO 400.
