KELOWNA - Lava from one of the world’s most active volcanoes continues to flow out of cracks in the earth and a Kelowna photographer was there to witness Mother Nature at her most fierce and beautiful.

Shawn Talbot jumped on a plane earlier this month to head to the lave flows from Kilauea on the Big Island, Oahu.

Talbot’s website 1Stop Closer documents his trip to “capture the fiery fury of flowing lava” especially as it spills into the Pacific Ocean.

At one point on the lave fields it was so hot, Talbot needed to put on gloves and a gas mask to get as close as he could to the fresh lava.

You can check out his daily journal at his website and lots more photographs from his Hawaiian volcano adventure.
