Flowing LavaBig Island, Hawaii

Riding a helicopter is one of the best ways I found to appreciate the beauty of the Hawaiian islands. Some outfitters will even offer you a ride on a smaller helicopter with no doors. It's a little intimidating a first, especially if you are trying to swap memory cards or lenses while the helicopter is banking hard, but it avoids all the challenges of shooting through a window: focus, dirt & dust, flares, etc.
On this shot you can see lava slowly flowing into the ocean. The lava is red in only a couple of places, but a dark gray in most of the image. #landscapephotography Gear
