Cerita Ambar visited Kilauea lava flow from the sea at Kalapana, Big Island Hawaii.
When molten lava meets the ocean it’s a profoundly cinematic moments in nature. Peter Lik’s award winning shot came after countless trips to Hawaii hoping to capture volcanoes. Stunning.
Kilauea Volcano, on Kalapana, The Big Island, I found following some rumors down dirt roads. I shot it at 5:54 a.m., under moonlight. It reminded me of the legend of Pele, Goddess of Fire in Hawaiian folklore—legend has it that she and her sister Na-maka-o-Kaha’i, Goddess of Sea and Water sabotaged each other. You can visualize Pele in the upper left, blowing steam from the volcano into the ocean.” Visit www.peterlik.com. *Tech Specs:* Tripod-mounted Hasselblad H2 with 50mm lens and Fujichrome Velvia 50.
