These shots were taken on June 16 & 17, 2018.

I am still a bit in shock at what we were able to witness. My friend and I went on a spur the moment trip to the Big Island of Hawaii to document a bit of the Kilauea Volcano action going on right now. On the first day, June 16, 2018, we chartered a helicopter with Paradise Helicopters and the second day we did the Lava Boat Tour. It was an incredible experience, to say the least, but also very eye-opening and pretty sad. Seeing the area where over 400 (over 600 now I believe) homes were taken out was pretty crazy. Seeing how fast the lava was flowing out the fissure 8 was even crazier, as seen in this collection. But seeing Kapoho Bay completely filled within days and Leilani Estates practically gone, was definitely the most shocking part. I guess we have to still remember these islands were formed by lava, to begin with.
