When you visit one of the world's most popular vacation spots, there's an awful lot to take in. The Hawaiian islands offer almost too much scenic beauty to photograph in one visit. That's not a bad thing, because it's a good reason for return trips. On the other hand, wouldn't it be nice to have an idea of some of the most spectacular photo subjects before you visit? We're going to give you a few good ideas right now!
Hawaii boasts some of the most photographed falls anywhere, and with good reason. Just take a look at some of these incredible drops:
The Falls of Mt. Waialeale
It's easy to get so caught up in the beauty of the island landscapes that you forget to notice the incredible creatures that live in the surrounding waters. You absolutely need to spend some time photographing these amazing animals:
Alright, maybe we didn't really need to mention this one; after all, we're talking about islands. That means beaches on all sides. Some are more accessible and some more photogenic than others, though:
Along the Kalalau Trail
Beach Scene on Kauai
Yes, that's a very specific subject, but for those who appreciate beautiful and unusual plant life (and what photographer doesn't?) this is a must-visit location. In addition to native flora, this botanical garden offers an amazing collection of plants from tropical locations around the world. Imagine photographing all of that in one place. On the other hand, why imagine it, when you can do it here:
Tropical Water Lilies
Now, you might think that just those 4 subjects would involve an awful lot of legwork, and on your own, it might. Fortunately for you, I'm here to let you know that you can take in all of the above on just one island in the chain. A visit to Kauai will give you all of this and much more!
