Volcano

Nature

by Dan on June 14, 2013

Cerita Ambar visited Kilauea lava flow from the sea at Kalapana, Big Island Hawaii.

When molten lava meets the ocean it’s a profoundly cinematic moments in nature. Peter Lik’s award winning shot came after countless trips to Hawaii hoping to capture volcanoes. Stunning.

Kilauea Volcano, on Kalapana, The Big Island, I found following some rumors down dirt roads. I shot it at 5:54 a.m., under moonlight. It reminded me of the legend of Pele, Goddess of Fire in Hawaiian folklore—legend has it that she and her sister Na-maka-o-Kaha’i, Goddess of Sea and Water sabotaged each other. You can visualize Pele in the upper left, blowing steam from the volcano into the ocean.” Visit www.peterlik.com. *Tech Specs:* Tripod-mounted Hasselblad H2 with 50mm lens and Fujichrome Velvia 50. Exposure, 2 sec at f/11.

Eyjafjallajokull Volcano

by Dan on February 29, 2012

Focus on the consequences rather than the fantasy in this Icelandic Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano. Enjoying the highly volatile and unpredictable status of nature.
