6-27-18 New Hawaii Lava Flow Images

Aloha,

I’m finally caught up on editing down my photos from all the helicopter tours I’ve done recently.

They’re in galleries noted by the date. To know what camera was used for an image, it’s the last part of the image name. Either D800 for the Nikon or GH5 for the Panasonic. It’s also noted in the image descriptions.

5 – 31 – 18 Leilani Eruption Helicopter Tour

6 – 03 – 18 Leilani Eruption Helicopter Tour

6 – 07 – 18 Leilani Eruption Helicopter Tour

I’ve also added numerous new Fine Art images. This time I did something new. I gave two series of images their own galleries. This was done because each had so many great shots that are similar but, subtly different enough that it became difficult to narrow them down to just one or two. I’ll let you do that if and when ordering prints or publishing.

Volcano 565A – 565Lc. A series of shots from my Nikon D800 and the Nikon 180mm 2.8. Available in both standard and panoramic sizing.

Volcano 566Ac – 566Nc. A series of shots from my Nikon D800 and the Nikon 16mm 2.8 shot in both FX (16mm) and DX (24mm) modes. Available in both standard and panoramic sizing.

Also, a new sizing ratio has been added to accommodate the Panasonic GH5 shooting at a 4:3 ratio vs my usual 3:2. When I’m shooting I see the 3:2 but, it saves a larger scene. On some, I decided to offer the full uncropped version along with the cropped. These are only available on metal sized from 9 x 12 to 45 x 60. For an example visit image 564 and click “Buy Now“.

Image 564 also has the standard options 8 x 12 to 40 x 60 on metal and the Metallic paper option from 8 x 12 (11 x 14 mat) to 30 x 45. 564c and 564cv. 564cv is one of my favorites from this eruption.

One unique image captured during one of the flights is the large lavafall pouring into what was once Green Lake. The huge flow managed to get inside of Kapoho Crater evaporating the 400-year-old lake in less than 2 hours time. Once the steam cleared a large lavafall appeared ever so briefly the morning of my flight. There was thick smoke over the crater coming from the flows front as it roared through Kapoho and Vacation Land so, sightings were short-lived. It was estimated at 50′ high. Image 567c.

Even though this large eruption has destroyed nearly everything we all knew of Kapoho it is developing an entirely new area of land with possible black sand beaches and new tide pools for future generations.

No, I don’t have any images from the ground in the residential areas. I have my reasons why I chose not to go at this time. Maybe someday I’ll share them if and when it’s appropriate.

Some final notes.

Civil Defense and every other agency you can think of has their hands full so, please stay away from the eruption area and view from either the air or boat tours. As the eruption grows and intensifies the area becomes even more dangerous. New breakouts will be faster and more widespread. The chances of getting trapped or worse are very real.

Also, don’t believe everything you hear on Facebook. If you want exact and real updates visit the USGS-HVO update website and or Hawaii County Civil Defense. You can also follow my twitter feed as I get my information from these sources.

Don’t be afraid to visit the island. This is only affecting a very small region in comparison to the size of The Big Island. About 1+% of the islands total acreage.

This event is affecting the entire islands economy. Not just those who have lost homes etc… If you want to help, be sure and donate to reputable organizations only and visit the island. Tourism is our economy.

New Fine Art Images & New Video

Aloha,

I’ve added 3 new images to my volcano Fine Art galleries. All in the 500 – 599 gallery.

I’ve been waiting for a special image to take the number 500 and I finally found one. It was actually captured 5 years ago and somehow missed during editing. There are two others from then. The intricate detail in these images is amazing.

They are all close-ups of flowing pahoehoe lava. #500 has the most amazing colors and it compliments #488cvv. They’d display well together.

#500

#563

#563c

The new video is from the recent lava lake activity at Kilauea volcanoes Halemaumau summit eruption.

This is a short version I shot with my Panasonic Lumix GH5 and the Leica Lumix 100-400mm lens. It shoots at the equivalent of 200-800mm. It was extremely windy so, the sound you hear is from an older lava flow. The vent itself is 1.2 miles from the viewing area and with the strong winds, nothing could be heard from the vent. All were captured in 4k at 60 fps. A much longer full version will be posted soon. It might be up to an hour long as it shows several long period sequences of the lava lakes crustal overturning. I suggest reading the video’s caption for more information.

New Lava Video & New Photo Galleries

 

Newest lava flow video.

Gopro video of the newest lava flow ocean entry at Kilauea volcano Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

These started a few hours before dawn Tues Aug 9th.
This footage was captured at sunrise looking directly into the sun.

When I first arrived the flow was just starting to cross the road in a very wide swath of fast moving lava.
These types of flows put out an extreme amount of heat.

“Why did the lava cross the road? To get to the ocean”

As usual with this summers weather, it was very windy. 30+ mph most of the time. The Gopro’s waterproof casing helps mute the strong winds.

My Nikon’s external mic on the other hand is very sensitive and a dead cat wind screen wasn’t enough. I’m currently editing footage from my D800.

Once the lava reached the ocean in multiple locations the steam plumes were engulfing the entire coast and inland area as the winds turned more onshore. This will be shown in great detail in my Nikon video clips.

Click here to view.

Two new photo galleries added to my website.

This one is from my lava flow hike back on July 26, 2016. When the first ocean entry started.

I decided to do something different with this gallery. I added the buy Now option directly to all the images and also have options for cropping and sizing.

People often like to purchase prints from my stock photo galleries so, this makes it easier from the start. You’ll also notice a variety of swirling ocean plume images. There were too many good ones that are unique in their own way so, I decided to add them all. I shot very few images for how long I was out that night/day. Maybe 50 total.

Click here to view.

The other gallery is something I never expected to be posting.

Fourth of July fireworks images from Kailua Kona’s 2016 event.

Generally the show lasts maybe 8 – 10 minutes so, there isn’t much time to get it right. Its a popular event over here so, it was very crowded at every vantage point.

They had a real nice variety this year as you’ll see.

I usually just watch vs shooting photos or video. Shot video a few years ago.

Be sure and check them out. All prints are available for purchase.

I’ll be getting a few on metal for my place.

Click here to view.

I’ve been out capturing footage often so, I’m at least 3 visits behind in editing and posting.

Thanks for subscribing and watching. Comments are always welcomed.

Many more photos & videos to come.
Be patient. What I do isn’t always easy.

My usual warning.
Do not attempt to do what I do.
I have 25 years of experience and I know what I’m doing out there.
So many things can go wrong for those who don’t understand or can’t recognize the dangers of a volcanic eruption.
Stay away and watch my videos instead.

If you’re able to hike 8-9 miles, go see this in person.
Stay away from the edge of the sea cliff. I know this area very well so, I also know where not to go which is the most important thing. Always be aware of what’s going on inland of you. Large breakouts can suddenly occur.

Prints from my adventures can be purchased on my website lavapix.com.
Or locally at Krazy About Kona in the Kona Inn Shopping Village, Kailua Kona, HI.

A unique view of the newest lava flow ocean entry at Kilauea volcano Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

It was extremely hot where I shot this.
Also, very windy like it has been all summer on that part of the island.

Video of this event from my Nikon D800 coming soon.

The tour boat seen is Lava Ocean Tours. Capt Shane and crew. Great tour to go on.

7-26-16 Hawaii Lava Flow Video – New Ocean Entry

Videos of the newest lava flow ocean entry at Kilauea volcano Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The Kamokuna ocean entry.

I arrived at the new ocean entry about 15 minutes after it started.
You can see how the new delta/bench (new land) grows as the video progresses.

As its been throughout this new flow, it was quite windy.

Videos of this event are from my Nikon D800 and the Gopro Hero 3+.

The tour boat seen is Lava Ocean Tours. Capt Shane and crew. Great tour to go on.

In the Nikon shot video I sped up a few clips to show how the steam plume swirls as it rises.

There will be a follow-up blog post once I’ve edited my still photos.

My usual warning.
Do not attempt to do what I do.
I have 25 years of experience and I know what I’m doing out there.
So many things can go wrong for those who don’t understand or can’t recognize the dangers of a volcanic eruption.
Stay away and watch my videos instead.

Having said my usual warning, let me add that this flow is accessible via hikes of at least 9 miles round trip.
Expect large crowds of people. Be sure to carry at least 3 liters of water per person.

Always use extreme caution at the sea cliffs and never walk out onto new land as it could easily collapse into the ocean taking you with it.
As the bench grows the immediate sea cliff will be vulnerable to collapse also.
I highly recommend you watching this HVNP safety video on safety at ocean entries.

Also, its best not to breath if you find yourself engulfed in the steam plume. If you think you will be in it often, be sure to wear a respirator.

Prints from my adventures can be purchased on my website lavapix.com.
Or locally at Krazy About Kona in the Kona Inn Shopping Village, Kailua Kona, HI.
