Description

This photograph was taken on private land adjacent to Volcano National Park. I had to walk over 450-500 degree lava to get to this spot, and was standing over a cliff taking photographs of lava flowing into the ocean. It was a wondrous moment for me, and one I will never forget. I hiked in to this spot in the dead of night over a lava field to set up my gear before dawn, so that I could photograph the lava both during the night and at first light.
