A longer exposure softens the movement of waves, lava, and billowing steam at the Kupapa‘u ocean entry in Kalapana, Island of Hawai‘i. The dynamicity of volcanic activity is mesmerizing, as no two frames are ever identical.

A lone drip of lava pours into the sea along the Kalapana coast. There’s hardly a sight in the world that can compare to witnessing the dynamic and creative forces of nature at the ocean entry. : )

Sea Snake by bruceomori

Hate to say this again, but viewing on black does make a difference with this image! : )

A thin river of pahoehoe lava snakes its way to the sea at the Ki ocean entry in Kalapana, island of Hawai‘i. Compositionally, I hate this image, but I’ll take what I can get while standing on extremely rocky ground, no pun intended. 🙂
