Taken during a trip to Hawaii in June 2013. During the 1.5 hike across the hardened lava flows of Kalapana, our local guide talked a lot about what the lava and its destruction has meant to his family over generations. We walked through the neighborhood he lived in, now flattened in a river of black. Despite the devastation, he talked of showing respect for Pele, the god of fire. While photographing the lava spilling into the sea about 30 minutes after sunset, I captured this image, which appears to show a sad face in the flow to the right of the frame. It almost seemed to show regret for the affect the lava has on the local population. So I named the image "Pele's Regret".
