I'm finally getting around to processing lava photos from February since I’m on break now. This one was from a clear morning with no wind, causing the plume from the lava ocean entry in the distance to rise straight up. The freshly dried lava is quite shiny and reflective compared to the old hardened lava.
Milky Way and Moonrise
I captured this at a circular pit crater called Mauna Ulu, in Volcanoes National Park. This is my third year capturing a milky way panorama here, it’s become sort of like a tradition, and I think this year tops it off. The right conditions aligned for the weather to be clear, the moon to rise in the center, and the milky way to be visible enough. Nothing was dropped in this image, it’s the real deal. This is a 6 image panorama captured with a Sony A7s and Rokinon 14mm.
