    Reported by:

    Lava falls into the Pacific Ocean from a lava tube which was severed after a delta collapse at the Kamokuna lava ocean entry in Kalapana, Hawaii. From a height greater than 100 feet, littoral explosions of molten rock and steam can be observed in a silent manner.

    Difficult to choose which one of these to comment on Jared. So, I'll choose this as it's my favourite though. I particularly love the contrast between hot and cold - hot molten lava and cool wet water. I also love how you have captured the flying rocks of molten lava as it makes impact with the ocean. Great job, EPIC indeed!
