Molten River of Lava heads to sea at sunrise ~ October 9th, 2008

Lava pours out of a tube near the surface before it enters the ocean at Waikupanaha, Hawaii.

Edit: Here is a USGS timelapse video clip showing the very real dangers of taking photos along te edge of newly formed lava benches like this one above--- A must see to believe: Lava Bench Collapse


I have added two photos below showing closer views of the lower section of the lava river:
