Powerful, Mystical Pictures Of A Cascade Of Lava In Hawaii – Michael Shainblum

Michael Shainblum is a landscape, time-lapse and aerial photographer based in San Francisco, California who has just captured a breathtaking series focused on the immense power of lava at the Volcanos National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. ‘One of the most truly mystical scenes I have ever had the pleasure of capturing. For this collection I wanted to showcase this beauty in my own artistic way, through fine art landscape photography. However still keep these scenes natural and true to what I witnessed on my journey.’

Steam Machine 2 – “As we traversed through the choppy waves on the coast of Hawaii, I looked up at the cliff in the distance. What appeared to be a giant mushroom cloud surrounded a section of the cliff face. The boat approached closer and closer to the cliff as the air got hotter and hotter. I could feel the cold ocean breeze on the back of my neck and steaming hot air on the front of my face. Finally, out of the mushroom cloud, a stream of red lava could be seen through the plumes of smoke.”

Elemental Collide – “It is hard to explain witnessing a moment like this. Watching lava pour out of the cliff into the ocean was incredible enough. To see a double rainbow form over the scene was unbelievable. The second image was taken during the dead of night, before any ambient light filled the sky.”
