Lava in all its colors

A variety of colors can be seen in this lava on the Puna Coast Trail (posted here).

This week’s Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge is ‘Lava.’ See more responses here. I don’t often run photos I’ve posted before, but this seemed like an opportune instance to rerun some older photos that are perfect for this theme. I’ve put captions on the photos and a link to the original posts for those interested in checking them out.

          I met Terri when she visited a few years back so she has experience on the island and she also knows what I do here. No doubt she knew I’d have plenty of lava options!

    Graham, I knew you would have the lock on lava and its color challenge this week! How cool to share the pics with the links to their posts. We remember the 2018 eruption, it wasn’t long after we had visited Volcanoes NP. Between that and the fake missile scare that year, Hawaii was quite unreal. I just love that very first image showing lava exactly like I pictured it! Awesome job! I’ll have to google how much the BI has grown in the last few years with all this volcanic activity, but you probably already know that.

      I think you chose this one for me! Much appreciated. 2018 was an eventful year here, that’s for sure. I think the Big Island gained well over 800 acres in that eruption.

    Brilliant shots, Graham. I can imagine your excitement when you saw the topic and I’d feel pretty excited to see some of those sights. I can’t believe how close those people are to the lava. This post will have me look up some of the old ones, as well as researching Hawaii’s active volcanoes.
