15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Ray of Zeus
On New Year’s Eve 2016, the sea cliff collapsed near Kalapana on Big island. A dramatic stream of lava, called fire hose, started to shoot out of the cliff. Before sunrise, I captured this dramatic picture mixing the lava cascade together with the steam from the ocean and the bombs. The lava stream collapsed on the 24th of March 2017.
