Wild Halemaumau Crater Photos! (Lava Lake & Devil’s Throat Hawaii Photo Essay)

The more I think about it, the more grateful I feel about my unexpected visit to the Halema’uma’u volcanic crater.

I’ve discussed the specifics of that story in a previous article, but today I’d like to immerse you in some unreleased photos that I took on that incredible day, including two super zoom shots of the roiling lava itself.

As I said before, the site was at once fearsome and magnificent, and I’m excited to share more from this incredible active Mt. Kilauea caldera, the home of Pélé herself. And remember, each of these photos link to their larger sizes over at the Byteful Gallery. More to come…

Share & Enjoy!
