Hot molten lava explodes upon contact with the sea just before daybreak. New land was forming before my eyes.
Photographing in these lurching seas was akin to riding a bucking bronco. Heat from the lava cascading into the sea was intense plus sulfur gas filled the air while at the back of my mind a little voice prayed the boat’s engines would not conk out.
