Lava Ocean Entry at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Dawn at Kamokuna

A beautiful pastel sunrise after a long night of shooting lava flowing into the ocean. So many great elements, the standing wave, lava drips and the soft morning light on the clouds and volcanic steam plume.

I arrived at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park about 2 am after driving two hours from Kona. After a five mile bike and hike,  I set up my tripod next to a crevice that dropped down about 30 feet to the ocean. I was shooting close-ups of the lava dropping into the ocean much of the night. As it became lighter with dawn, I realized that the 21 acre bench that had formed over 6 months had become very unstable. After I packed up my gear and was ready to leave I stopped for a moment and thanked Pele with a small prayer thanking her for safe passage and stated that I knew the landscape was ready to change and I wouldn't be returning until it did. The next morning about 8am the bench suddenly dropped into the ocean dragging 5 acres of cliff with it. It took out exactly where I had been standing. As the cliff sheared off it, it revealed a huge lava tube that began flowing directly into the ocean as a 30ft lava waterfall that was nicknamed the 'Fire Hose' and can be seen in my 'Liquid Love' and 'Debris' images
