Holy smokes, its really glowing right now! Vivid red hot colors contrasting against cold steam and vog are putting out a show tonight. While I was waiting for the sun to come down, the lava entering the ocean was churning and screaming in hot fiery colors and getting more intense as the sun came to its close.
I'm glad I decided to stay and watch the evening lava show come out in all its glory, and yes it was worth the wait. Even the tour boats bobbing dangerously close to the cliffsides were giving the boatloads of tourists amazing scenes of the lava pouring into the ocean. Their views look directly from the lava pouring down the cliffs to the ocean, something I would not be able to photograph since standing on the edge of crusty and unstable cliffs is more than a foolish thought, its immediate death. I'm sure most of the tourists on the boats thought the few people on land were just as crazy standing so close to the edge of live lava pouring down into the ocean.
The skies that evening were also quite beautiful, colorful sunset hues also gave us show over the kilauea mountain range. Sunsets are not typical on the east side were we get sun rises starting off our early days on the east side.
It was a fun hike exploring this area and seeing this amazing show, I'm glad I got to do this and have the opportunity to show you a little about my world here in East Hawaii.
