On the South side of the Big Island of Hawaii lava has been flowing steadily for many years. I (used to) live about 22 miles from the active zone and occationally go there and take pictures. It is very exciting to be standing where the earth is literally forming beneath your feet!

Many of these lava images can be found in high resolution for prints and digital downloads here Please email me if there are some you would like added to the high resolution site.
