Witnessing creation cannot be described in words and even photos pale to actually being there. Standing on land that didn't exist a few month before and watching the planet being formed in front of your eyes is beyond...anything. This photo captures molten magma flowing over a cooling lava cliff into the surf of a new black sand beach on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1989. As the lava hits the ocean it blows apart into firery, red hot pieces that float in the surf, washing up on the beach making it a red/purple color. Taking a photo like this is extremely dangerous. The gas is deadly, and the land I'm standing on is unstable and hot enough to start melting shoes. A few months earlier four people were killed when the cooling lava they were standing on collapsed into the ocean...But, No Guts, No Glory.
