G. Brad Lewis ~ 'Volcano Man'
"Spatter cone on west side of Pu`u O`o cone. A 30’ lava explosion in the shape of a heart."
-I captured the image "Pele's Heartbeat", at the Pu'u O'o vent of Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. The spatter cone was less than a day old when I helicoptered into the eruption site, with camping gear, two camera systems, and a hundred rolls of film. Newly formed spatter cones are one of my favorite features on Kilauea, the most active volcano on the planet. Towards evening, lava started to explode out of the center of the cone. I was fortunate to press the shutter at the exact moment that this particular burst of lava (30 feet in diameter) happened to be in the shape of a heart. A true gift from Pele, the volcano goddess.Photograph | Metal Print | Open Edition
