Sometimes, you're just in the right place at the right time. And if you're like Josh Amolsch, exclusive buyer's agent for the Elizabeth Weintraub Team, you worked hard for that privilege. He is staying at my house in Kona on vacation right now.
A little background: there are 5 volcanoes on Big Island of Hawaii, but only three of them are active. The 5 volcancoes are Kohala (extinct), Mauna Kea (dormant), Hualalai (active), Mauna Loa (active) and Kilauea (active). Most of the lava flow into the ocean comes through cones near Kilauea. There is another volcano 15 miles off the island, under the water.
Josh shot this photo after an 8-mile bike ride, which is super strenguous given the terrain. You can read more in my personal blog today and see more photographs of lava at this link: Lava Flow Into the Ocean on Big Island.
