A helicopter tour is a great way to see the active volcanoes on the Big Island. I believe this is part of Pu’U ‘O’O, but it could be part of Kilauea. You can see if you look closely, just under the black surface is the red lava. It flows in underground tubes into the ocean where it produces steam when the lava hits the water.

Volcano! – ProjectEdit365 – 16 July

I took this in the helicopter, so through a window. I had to crop it to straighten it. I was able to heal my reflection out. I used an HDR preset and then modified the red color using the color sliders. I decreased the vignetting that the preset added so you could see the lava at the corner of the photo. Here’s the original.
