Forces of Nature

The Milky Way shines brightly above the lava lake in Halema'uma'u Crater. I even caught a meteor in there for bonus splendor! Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

I adore the balance of both majesty and intensity within this photograph, conveying two forces of nature that are completely different but have the same impact of awe. The contrast between the lake of lava and the belt of the galaxy is equally brilliant. Not only this, but being able to catch the passing of a meteor crossing over the photograph makes it much more perfectly caught in the moment.

Congratulations on receiving a Daily Deviation!

This is a really cool image--when I visited, the volcano was slumbering.  But even then it was an awesome sight at night, like the eye of a sleeping dragon.  And the starry night sky above Hawaii is amazingly clear!

Congratulations on your Daily Deviation!

Amazing picture! (And this is off the subject but could someone please tell me how to make a new folder in my gallery?)
ShadowDrakkon's avatar
This photograph is beautiful, I definitely agree.

(To create folders for your gallery, there is an open margin off to the left of it beneath "Featured", "All", and "Scraps". Beneath these three choices is a block icon that should read "Create New Folder".)

Ok, but I think you must be using the PC version, cause it doesn't say "All" or "Scraps" anywhere. Thanks though. 🙂

Oh, I had no idea it was different for Macintosh users. I am terribly sorry about that.

You are welcome, anyway. Not sure if I helped.
