Hot #lava is frozen in mid-air at a vent at #Kilauea #volcano in #hawaii @kilauea_erupts The closer one gets to the hot stuff, the better the #photography I #photographed #maunaulu and the #image appeared on the cover of #nationalgeographic magazine. Then #nationalgeographictelevision sent me back and I made this #image of the exploding #volcano I tweet at least a #picture a day! See more of my #photography at www.bobm.me #photojournalism #lavahunters

Spent some time where @kilauea_erupts I photographed the last large fountain at #maunaulu which appeared on the cover of #nationalgeographic Then in 2008 #nationalgeographictelevision sent me back for a “behind the cover” show where I made this #image from a helicopter of the #volcano - A dragon, don’t you think? I tweet 4 pics a day as a #visual #diary See more spectacular #photography at www.bobm.me

#memories from Dec 2017. Looking into the throat of a volcano. This would not be a pleasant place to be in 1969 when Mauna Ulu blew its top! Geysers of red hot lava would have been spewing from this and many other fissures. From a guide book - "in the five short years of this eruption, roads, cultural sites, and coastal grassland we're burned and buried in the lava's relentless flow to the sea."

Historial de Erupciones
Durante algunos días postearé información sobre erupciones de un solo volcán. Hoy será del #kilauea . 🌋

La Erupción Efusiva del Mauna Ulu (Mauna Ulu = Montaña en Crecimiento)

Inició el 24 de mayo de 1969 con varias fisuras simultáneas (entre Aloi y Alae) que iniciaron decenas de coladas de lava en diferentes direcciones. Conforme iban emitiendo más lava se fue formando un solo volcán. El Mauna Ulu. .
.
.
.
Luego en 1973, llevando 4 años seguidos en erupción, ocurrió un terremoto magnitud 7,2Mw que movió la erupción a otros cráteres: el Pauahi y el Hiiaka. Pero luego de algunas semanas la actividad regresó a el volcán Ulu. .
.
.
.
Finalmente el 24 de julio de 1974 la erupción se detuvo dejando como resultando:
350 millones de metros cúbicos de lava.
44km de nueva tierra en Hawaii
1,774 días de actividad eruptiva
Un nuevo cono volcánico
La erupción más larga desde hacía 2,200 años.
.

En una imagen se aprecia como las corrientes de lava caen por un precipicio de más de 100 metros.
En otra se aprecia como una fuente de lava forma un domo abovedado simétrico de lava. Lo cual es muy raro según el @usgs .
Una foto que me impresiona mucho es la de las fuentes de lava que alcanzaron alturas superiores a los 500 metros.
Fue algo impresionante. .

In the last week on the Big Island of Hawaii, there was a 6.9 magnitude earthquake, the crater floor of Pu’u Vent collapsed, the lava lake that was overflowing at Halema’uma’u Crater has dropped hundreds of meters, and 12 gigantic fissures suddenly opened up (like overnight!😳) in Leilani Estates erupting fountains of lava which have engulfed approx 30 homes! It’s crazy and heartbreaking. There was enough warning for people to evacuate so at least no one was hurt. But I don’t think it is over. I have mad respect for Madame Pele but I hope she doesn’t claim any more structures. #leilaniestates #kilauea #hawaiivolcanoesnationalpark #madamepele #bigisland #hawaii #fissureeruption #kilaueavolcano #puuoovent #puuoo #lava #firegoddess #lego #legominifigures #toy_photographers #womenintoyphotography

Lots of earthquakes at Kilauea Volcano today putting the nearby communities on alert for possible eruption. Lots of movement of magma lately causing large cracks to appear along the East Rift Zone, as well as an overflow of the lava lake at the summit! I ❤️ LAVA!

I haven’t figured how to walk on water (yet), but we walked on the moon! Okay, lava. Fortunately this lava is no longer burning hot magma.

Standing upon the summit of Mauna Ulu. Looking in the distance the ridge line of the massive Mauna Loa can be seen rising above the clouds, in the foreground are active steam vents. The summit of Mauna Ulu and the surrounding area that was affected by its last eruptions(1969-1974) are desolate but incredible places. The geology of this area is absolutely fascinating, what a great way to spend this years Earth Day.

An old volcanic fissure vent now hosts a variety of plants, along the fascinating Mauna Ulu Eruption trail in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

From our travel journal @clientvoyage The US Geological Survey recently posted this image reportedly taken in 1969 by photographer J.B. Judd, showing a 65-Foot-Tall Lava Dome in Hawaii. The Mauna Ulu eruption of Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii lasted five years! Looks like a scene from a 50's sci-fi movie!

Today one of our guests, who is an avid #nationalpark visitor, claimed that the Chain of Craters road drive in the @hawaiivolcanonp was the most beautiful drive she has ever been on! .
😍

Here is a picture of the #holei Pali and a chunk of the old road that got covered by the 1969-1974 lava flows of #MaunaUlu
