THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII ... years ago we were able to get a lot closer to the hot lava sizzling as it hit the water, spitting out bits of new, black sand. We got great photos since it was dusk. There were very few people around including the park ranger who was interesting to talk with. One of those great lifetime moments.
Couldn't get much closer due to the roads being blocked off but a quick zip through a parking lot and down and couple back roads put us on top of a hill with a great view yesterday which gave me the opportunity to snap this wide shot. Tornado Wray, CO.
