Dramatic Lava Spewing in Hawaii

Our bucket list includes seeing scorching hot, liquid lava flowing from active vents in the earth’s crust. Luckily, Hawaii is relatively accessible, and has many places where you can witness liquid rock spewing into the ocean. Captured with an unusual sense of form and style by Michael Shainblum in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park on the big island, the images show the great contrast in colors, shape, and temperatures. Taken from a boat, Shainblum’s vantage point give us a fascinating look at the way new landmasses are formed. Via Fubiz:
