Say Aloha to Hawaii!

New Work from Hawaii - Now Online!

It was relatively quiet along the shores of the Big Island in Hawaii for quiet some time. But since early March of this year, lava from the Kilauea Volcano flows down again to the coastal plains - which produces new land for the island - and makes the Big Island even bigger. Now when the red lava meets the Pacific Ocean, giant steam plumes rise high in the sky - this makes it so magnificent and absolutely unique to Hawaii. I photographed the phenomenon from land, water and air. Beside the lava flows, there's currently the top-most crater of Kilauea Volcano smoking. About 2 months ago, the Halemaumau Crater saw it's first explosive eruption since 1924. A white plume currently issues from the vent - and I was lucky enough to get some shots.
