Shot this one at the long end of my shiny new 70-200mm lens. I LOVE THIS LENS. (To give you some idea of scale, the linear distance from me to those people on the cliff is almost exactly 900 metres.)

Yes, the ocean really is that shade of blue. (And the rocks really are that shade of black. It absorbs the heat of the sun like you wouldn't believe - it's like a furnace when you're out on the lava during the day.)

An eerie, surreal postcard I made a few years ago, from a scanned picture of the post-eruption landscape of Plymouth, Montserrat (found in Time Magazine; you can see the text showing through in the sky). 

The rocket was scanned from a "w...

This is a plant that was close to the steam vent in the last photo. The vent-facing side of it was absolutely covered in these thin strands of what I think are sulfur crystals.

You can clearly see the recent lava flows (black), the older lava flows (gray/brown), and the lucky trees that have been standing in the middle.

It seems to take about 30 years for plants to start reappearing after an area is inundated by lava.

This is the first view of the steam plume that you see as you drive down Chain of Craters Road. The plume marks the point where the current lava flow spills into the sea, enlarging the island of Hawaii (and creating some dangerously toxic sulfurou...

Well, not quite, but pretty close. The black stream was a recent lava flow, I think from the late '70s or early '80s.  

This photo was taken high up on Chain of Craters Road.

This is the largest outcropping in the Sulfur Banks. And damn, does it stink - not of rotten eggs (hydrogen sulfide), but of lit matches (sulfur dioxide). SO2 is poisonous, and I had a headache even after I was down off the mountain.

The name of this plant escapes me (help! anyone?), but it has a neat little evolutionary adaptation that lets it live right next to the sulfur vents, and all over Kilauea. 

The stomata in its leaves have evolved a response to sulfur dioxide - whe...
