Lava Lake at Halemaʻumaʻu

A bit of video put together from the clips I recorded at Kilauea Caldera this morning. The video was shot with a Canon 6D and a Televue 76mm telescope. It really does not do justice to the image through the ‘scope with a mark I eyeball. But it will have to do.

The soundtrack was mostly wind noise and random comments from the crowd of people watching the spectacle. Very faintly you can hear some of the noises from the lava, but only in spots. Instead of this annoyance I just threw a copy of Fireworks Music in place of the mic noise, much better.

  1. I was just there tonight, you did an incredible job capturing it!!! Nothing can ever beat seeing that live through a pair of binoculars or even just with the unaided eye, but you came pretty close.

  2. First time this has been possible. No excuse not to make a drive across the island to see it. Even if it meant leaving the house at 3am, doing the drive, then going to work.
