Kilauea Caldera, Volcano National Park, Hawai'i
It's hard to believe it's been a week since I've returned from Hawaii. I spent yesterday reliving the experience, editing the few rolls of photos that I took. I had decided not to shoot so much because I was travelilng with friends; I wanted to enjoy being in the moment. Looking back at the film, I wish I had shot more.
The above photo was taken at the Jaggar Museum overlooking the Kilauea caldera. The museum itself was well worth visiting for the exhibits of various volcanic rock (including Pele's hair) and the videos. Seeing the slow surface lava flow was amazing. Our view of the lava was much more active (and probably dangerous). I'd love to go back some day to find surface flow. I want to hear the sound of the rock as it cools and breaks as the lava magma underneath keeps flowing. People say it sounds like breaking glass.
Oh! I've posted more photos of Hawaii here. The majority of the photos are in color, and I've also included a video (a first for this site!) of the lava flow (page 19).
