Kilauea: The Fire Within

Kilauea: The Fire Within

Photographer Lance Page’s latest short film explores the ominous beauty of Hawaii’s highly active Kilauea volcano. We’re always amazed that photographers don’t melt their gear (or worse) capturing the searing hot lava flows.

Photographer Kawika Singson likes to get up close and personal with volcanoes. In fact, he gets so close sometimes that his shoes have caught fire. Though these particular flames were apparently staged by his pal Chris Hirata.

Chillin’ at a Lava Lake

Chillin’ at a Lava Lake

Into the Volcano

The guys in this video rappel down into the mouth of an active volcano in Vanuatu, capturing some of the most incredible nature footage you’ll ever see. Why does only one guy have a fireproof suit on?
