Lava Flow - Hawaii

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 8 October 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This image was taken on a guided boat ride led by Lava Roy's adventures. Captain Roy did a great job of getting myself, Don Smith, and Mike Hall in position to shoot this flowing lava from the Kilauea lava flow running into the ocean. It was a difficult shooting situation with the moving boat and swells. I attempted to use a higher iso setting and fast shutter speed to freeze the action of the flowing lava between billowing steam clouds!

This was like the parting of the Red Sea Scott - great timing and awesome timing on the part of our captain. As you know, this steam quickly enveloped the lava once again. I really like this frame!

Excellent timing from what I have heard Scott - but I can feel the heat coming off the screen here...good heavens, you have done a fantastic job conveying the feeling of the surroundings, the fog, and the heat. The contrast between the fog and the river of fire is compelling! Fantastic image Scott!!
