New Smugmug Gallery – Mt KilueaBy
Mt Kilauea in Hawaii has been constantly erupting since 1983, and was the absolute highlight of our trip. We took a boat ride out at 3 in the morning so we could see the volcano by dawn. The waves were 20ft, the lava was hot, and I lost a lens to salt water erosion after I got home. I am not ashamed to say that I was shaking as I shot this, because the combination of the high waves and the deep troughs made for one harrowing ride! To witness such a majestic sight, new land as it’s being created, was truly one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had :) I’ve added these pics to my Smugmug site, so if you’re interested in prints, check it out!
Oh WOW!! When were you there Shireen?
Awesome shots, Shireen – and I thought my zodiac trips to shoot humpback whale activity was adventurous ;)
