Lonely Planet Article

Aloha,

A short article about me was recently published on Lonely Planets website.

The one image that states its me against the backdrop of lava is actually a friend of mine. If you who know me, notice he has too many fingers and I’m better looking too.

Activity at the current lava flow has been slow.

I do have a new video on my Youtube channel that’s posted below. Just a series of relaxing surface flows. The subtle sounds are peaceful too.

Be sure to share the article from Lonely Planets page. The links are at the end of the article.

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.

2-16-17 Lava Ocean Entry “Fire Hose”

Aloha,

New video of the explosive lava flow ocean entry at Kilauea volcano Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Photos will follow at a later date.

Lava Fire Hose at the Kamokuna ocean entry. 61g lava flow.

There’s been a significant lava Fire Hose coming out of the sea cliff ever since the bench/delta collapsed New Years Eve. If you’ve been reading my warnings at the end of the descriptions, you know this comes as no surprise.

Said this in my previous video;
The sea cliff blocking the view of it is ready to fall soon. Later in the video after sunrise you can see the large cracks in it that run deep into the depths of the ocean.

It did collapse.

In this video you’ll see a dozen or more people at the cliffs edge. This coast line will continue to collapse. Don’t go where they are!!

The Fire Hose is estimated to be about 90′ high and several feet round.

Stay away from this sea cliff!!!!!

The people there are lucky to be alive. Nothing brave about being out there. Nothing great to see as the steam blocks their view. That area is set to collapse at any time. Not to mention the large hot rocks flying all over that could have killed them.

This isn’t one of those times when its safe to be at an ocean entry.
Stay in the clearly marked safe zone.

Thanks for subscribing and watching. Many more 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 26 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 8-9 miles round trip.
Expect large crowds of people. Be sure to carry at least 3 liters of water per person.

There’s a real nice surface flow nearing the coast too.

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 or at the very least cover your mouth and nose with a shirt or similar when breathing.

11-30-16 New Photos & Videos

Aloha,

I was quite busy visiting the lava flow for a while back in August and September and then of course catching up on editing both photographs and video captured during those outings. It was great being able to ride the mountain bike most of the way and even right up to the lava flows at times.

Every outing was fantastic as always. Even the one with several inches of rain and constant thunder and lightning while riding out there in the dark. I did use my Gopro to video that ride. Haven’t processed it yet but, when I do I’ll let you know. I was fortunate enough to be at the flows each time a new ocean entry was about to start. Well, I timed it that way of course  🙂

A few changes have been made to my website Fine Art galleries.

The number of images has grown quite a bit over the years so, now I have the Volcano Fine Art images broken down into multiple galleries.

1 – 99, 100 – 199, 200 – 299, 300 – 399, 400 – 499, & 500 – 599.

Newest images can always be found in the higher numbered galleries. Start with image #522 and work your way up to see the latest as of this post.

Another big change is the separation of lava Fine Art from non-volcanic images. When you hover over the Fine Art Galleries menu you’ll see the additional galleries listed below the volcano ones.

Sunrise & Sunset – No Lava, Hawaii Night Photos – No Lava,

Green Sands Beach Fine Art, Big Island Shaped Prints, Big Island of Hawaii Misc – No Lava,

etc… Remember, you can always do a keyword search for a Fine Art image by its number. General keyword searches need to use one of the keywords posted on the Keywords page. You can’t use any random keywords.

Images from my outings at the lava flows in August & September can be seen at these links. All images are available as prints or for licensing.

Aug 2016 Lava 61g & Sept 2016 Lava 61g.

Several new videos have been added to my YouTube channel since my last post. Both lava and non-lava. Start here and work your way back. New videos are added often so, best to subscribe to my YT channel for instant notification to new video uploads. Each video has a detailed description.

Christmas is coming up quickly so, if you’re thinking of ordering a print for a present, best to do so soon. I can’t give an exact cut off date due to the many variables with orders.

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.

11-03-12 HVNP

Aloha,

I’ve been busy hiking and have had little time to post anything. I never find a way to catch up on my images. This post is about my last two visits to the volcano. Remember, I post shots from various angles for publishers. A few from these outings might be added to my Fine Art gallery.

The first was to the park its self and some images of Halemaumau’s glow before and during sunrise. The lack of trade winds meant there would be calm conditions allowing the plume to rise straight up into the night sky. I also stopped along the highway to get a few shots from a distance. The glow was very bright and easy to see for miles. After a nice pre dawn session I ventured to other areas of the park to take advantage of the light winds and beautiful skies. I did shoot Thurston lava tube too which was nice and dry for once.

View the gallery here. 11-03-12 HVNP

I know the images are posted at a small on my website. Having about ten thousand images on their its necessary to keep them small so the site loads quickly. The detail in the images from my Nikon D800 is amazing. If you’re a publisher looking to license any of them, you won’t be disappointed. They’re meant to print at large sizes.

The other gallery is small but, it does have some interesting images from a recent hike to the lava flows just east of the park. I can’t post everything I shot right now or even say why not. They will have to wait until some time early next year. Lets just say it was a great experience. For the most part the weather was nasty with strong trade winds and frequent showers. We did get a nice though a bit muted lunar rainbow and then a nice morning rainbow. The lunar one was muted as it was only a crescent moon which I was surprised to see it produce even that. Had it been a full moon one, a spectacular image could have been captured. As it was, my only opportunity wasn’t successful due to the strong winds. The lava flow activity was very subdued. So, much so that the flow wasn’t really seen until we were right there.

Limited images from this hike can be seen here. 11-09-12 lava

I have many other images to post if I ever find the time from other parts of the Big Island. And then there’s the video footage I always talk about too…..

10-10-12 New Retail Location

Aloha,

I’m happy to announce my prints are now available at the newly opened Volcano House in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.

The Volcano House for now has a soft opening with a real nice new gift shop and food also. The rest of the Volcano House will slowly open in the coming months as it continues to undergo renovations.

It’s great to see the Volcano House coming back and I’m glad to be a part of it. Be sure to stop in and support them.

My prints will no longer be available at the Volcano Art Center. Those prints and display will move to their sister gallery, Volcano Village Rain forest gallery.

I’ve also added a new image to my non-volcanic Big Island Fine Art gallery. It’s a beautiful Green Flash image #425 that was captured on a vog free evening on Sept 1st, 2012. It’s also available at the two Kona retail locations. Krazy About Kona and Trudy’s Island Arts. Panoramic sizes coming soon.

Just a reminder, my images on paper print on Kodak’s Professional Metallic paper that’s archival 100-200 years when framed and displayed out of direct sunlight. Metal images are archival for generations and no framing needed. All printed at a professional lab.
