Nani Pahoehoe (Beautiful Lava)
Captured with the Pentax 645z Medium Format Camera
As pressure builds within a a lava tube, a breakout pahoehoe begins to flow from underneath the crust, creating an incredible display of the color and formations that create new earth that help transform the beautiful island of Hawai'i with new land. To witness this spectacle from directly above, the sense of art and abstract become prevalent and dominate the mind's eye.
Special thanks to my friend Bruce Omori @bruceomori and Mick Kalber for being gracious hosts, and letting me poach their angles alongside them on Paradise Helicopters @paradisehelicopters out of Hilo. It was an honor to see the lava with a legend. Bruce, so much aloha for the invite and thanks for the poke bowls, and the time to talk story for as long as we did. Also thanks for lending me the blackrapid camera sling @blackrapid!! Can't wait to go back and see you, CJ, Scott Hansen, all the FBI crew, and malama da aina!

Unlike the #BigIsland of #Hawaii, where recent #lavaflows are visible everywhere, #Oahu is a much older #island with abundant #plant #life and #super #fertile solid. This is me at #ChinaWalls, apart from being one of the best places to catch #spectacular #sunsets; it's also a special place to see greenish lava #formations (not just plain old #black #pahoehoe #lava "pah-hoy-hoy"). The greenish hue is caused by the presence of a semi-precious stone called #Olivine. #night #nightphotography #nightlife 📸 @street_savant

Twisted and convoluted
I really like close up shots of the lava. So many details. Like all the twisted and convoluted ropey details of the pahoehoe lava. The lava appears blue because it was shot in the predawn hours. #lava #61G #bluelava #pahoehoe #kilauea #volcano #bigislandhawaii #geology #lavaflow #hawaiivolcanoesnps

New!
ʻĀkala dyed carved wood and painted with black lacquer with a touch of resin in some areas to highlight design. I wanted to somehow highlight a little bit of Tutu Pele with deep reds and black, and found ʻĀkala berries made a nice fit in dying the wood with a deep red hue. 🌋

Happy Earth Day! Here's a throwback to when I watched some liquid earth flow down a big hill in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Lava fields are such a surreal, hellish and dangerous landscape - I encourage everyone to visit them. #earthday #hawaii #bigisland #maunakea #volcano #lava #ipokedit #explore #adventure #wander #getburnt #pahoehoe #iwassodehydratedithurt

Santiago Island (aka San Salvador) consists of two overlapping shield volcanoes. At Sullivan Bay pahoehoe lava flow can be observed.

Destructive and deadly pahoehoe lava flown out of Volcan Santiago on Santiago Island in 1897. As the lave pahoehoe seized any forms of lives within its reach, it also left behind a lifeless yet dauntingly beautiful landscape. Vulcan Santiago is one of the youngest volcanoes; it is roughly 2 million years old. Isla Santiago also known as San Salvador and James Island. It was part of Columbus' Americas' discovery and voyage. #islasantiago #galapagos #santiagoisland #lava #pahoehoe #wanderlustingvivingalapagos #travelphotos #adventureislife #sullivanbay #darwinwashere #columbus #wanderlust #wanderluster #ilovetravel #borntotravel #crazyabouttravel #seeingtheworld #exploretheworld #ecuador #galapagos #travelgram #instatravel #mybucketlist #livetotravel #journeyofmylife
