15th Annual Photo Contest
Ray of Zeus

On New Year’s Eve in 2016, a sea cliff collapsed near Kalapana on Big Island, Hawaii. A dramatic stream of lava, called a fire hose, started to shoot out of the cliff. Before the sunrise, I captured this dramatic picture, where the lava cascaded into the ocean, creating steam and lava bombs. The lava stream stopped in March 2017.

This photo is a finalist in the Natural World category of our 15th Annual Photo Contest. See all 60 finalists here.
