Halona Blow Hole

Friday Photo – Halona Blow Hole

One of the amazing sights on Oahu is the Halona Blow Hole. The natural wonder is part of the coastal lava rock formations on the island’s southeast side. We came upon the scenic lookout as we drove on the Kalanianole Highway. The first photo captures the initial water spout not unlike what one witnesses from a whale. The second photo captures the rush of water as it fills the rock formation producing quite the water show.

Another feature of the photos is the contrasting blues in the waters off the island. While we were taking in the scenery we spotted a Green Turtle bobbing in the waves. I did not have my long lens with me to capture the turtle but it was quite fun to watch the turtle negotiate the crashing waves.

Enjoy! We did.
