As pretty as those shots are, the lava isn't flowing now. You really need to have some luck to see the lava for yourself.

I was 'lucky' enough to be stranded on the Big Island on September 11. I went out to see the lava flow that night and enjoy a little local produce. It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen in my life.

Risky but totally worth it.

Puns were once thought to be highest form of humor.

It was during this time that leeches were the highest form of medical technology.

Some day they'll say the same thing about sarcasm.

Uh, yes it is... it's just flowing slowly through the forest toward some subdivisions.  You don't need luck, you need a helicopter.

I like the shots with the waves - that's a pretty original approach.  The ones just showing lava pouring into the water, everybody on the island has done before.

When confronted with the sheer terror of a volcanic eruption, I always tended more toward the "Price is Right Showcase Showdown" approach... AND THAT'S NOT ALL, your showcase includes MOLTEN ROCK!

avoiding lava bombs just a few from where he was standing.

Just a few what?

he feel into a 20-foot lava tube while shooting the Kilauea Volcano

He feel?

There is no other place in the world that you can photography within feet of where you stood the day before

You can photography?

When was that taken? I was out there in April and the lava was most definitely NOT anywhere to be seen.

Hey... It's all about the quantity, not quality. You weren't supposed to actually read the article. It's the click bait way.

And we all fell for it.

My photo's a decade old.  Like I said, it's flowing through forests toward some subdivisions now, and you need a helicopter to see it, basically.  That was true in April and any other recent month too.  They call it the Kahauale'a 2 flow, and it's been going on since sometime last year, when it took over from the flow down to the ocean near Kalapana.  (Oh, yes, by the way, the photos in TFA are not new.)  It's the red part on this map.

At first glance, I thought you were pissing on the lava...

Now,  I am disappoint, son.

Hyperbole is a billion times more likely.

Kinda curious.. If anyone can explain from a science perspective.

They mention near scolding hot water..  How is that possible with such a large volume of water surrounding, a relatively small dumping point of lava (in comparison to the volume of water surrounding it).

I'm guessing (want confirmation) is the current is so slow it can't bring in cooler water faster than the heat from the lava can raise the temperature?

Any maps showing the thermal spread in the water around there?

/science rules

The water is very disappointed in you. What are you thinking?

Anybody catch what equipment was being used that could stand up to getting soaked by the waves while having the light sensitivity and dynamic range to capture all that we are seeing?

Is that the Northern Lights in one of those photographs?  I didn't think the Northern Lights had been seen in Hawaii since the 1859.

The camera guy was in and out of that shore break like a sea lion.

...which is still more recently than Yosemite Falls has been seen in Hawaii... somehow or other, this guy hasn't yet gotten onto the no-fly list, I guess.
