Lava Level Increasing Within Halema’uma’u

A couple of days ago the lava level in the crater increased to it’s highest level to date.  You can see spattering as the level reaches the top of the crater.  Cool.  Or hot, depending on your view.

This is just a quick shot of the crater from last night and I’ll head back tonight with the 100-400mm lens and try to capture the spattering.  Who knows, it may continue and overflow into the Kilauea Crater or it may deflate, there is no way to know what will happen.

Ron Bailey is a photographer living and working in Hawaii, USA.
