It's was so amazing to get so close to liquid rock, flowing up from earth's core, and creating new land right before my eyes. I just loved how the rock would cool on the surface, creating a skin, that would then break apart as it flowed into the sea. I could even see it dripping onto the sandy shore and as the waves would come in, plumes of steam would rise as the ocean cooled and solidified the lava. About 10 feet of shoreline is captured in this shot. Photo was taken August 23, 2010 in Volcanoes National Park, the Big Island of Hawaii.
