Ho'opi'i Falls Kauai

Ho’opi’i Falls Kauai

Ho’opi’i Falls near the town of Kapa’a on Kauai is a magical spot is popular for hiking and relaxing; but it is also home to cliff-jumping local daredevils and more than one engagement story. Take a seat on a lava-bench, sit back, and let the entrancing activity of the falls pour over you.

From the photographer:

There is debate as to whether these falls go by that name, or the next falls up-stream. In either case, it’s a beautiful hike to get in there. This location claimed the life of my brother’s Manfrotto tripod and almost took his D700 with 24-70mm lens too!

Ho’opi’i Falls is a series of two waterfalls fed by the Kapa’a Stream in a quiet tropical forest. This picture captures the stream with the falls above at a low-running time of the year. The upper waterfall measures out at around 10-15 feet, while the lower falls are around 30 feet.

About Matt Wade

Matt was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado and attended Colorado State University. From his earliest memories as a child, he had an interest in art. "Art has always served as a respite from life’s demands and a way to explore parts of the world that I don't normally experience in my daily routine. For this reason, I’ve focused mostly on landscape with several artistic mediums over the years. The inherent abstract quality in the forms and shapes in wilderness, combined with the right light and atmosphere, create scenes that surpass anything I could imagine. If I’m successful in capturing these moments, though they can last mere minutes, seconds or even less, they serve as a reminder that our lives exist in context with something much larger."
