About the Shot
Pele's Throne. Looking into the Pu'u O'o vent as lava gushing from a spatter cone creates a lava lake that fills the entire vent. This lava lake overflowed from both sides of the vent several hours later. I was camped near this spot, and had to be careful that the lava pouring out of the vent did not cut off my escape route. This is creation at its finest.
