A Sunday LAVA FIX, anyone?

Any lava junkies having difficulty making it through the weekend?  Here’s a FIX for you in these intimate images of lava from our documentary overflight a couple days ago.  Enjoy!

Bird’s eye view of the apex of a large breakout on the newest lobe on the eastern flank of Pu‘u ‘O‘o.
Bubbling and spattering on Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s lava pond, swallowed slabs of cooled crust. So incredible to witness!
Fine wrinkles form on the surface of a river of lava as it cools and pushes forward.
The firehose at the Kamokuna ocean entry creates an enormous littoral explosion, sending shards of molten lava, or ejecta, more than 100 feet into the air.
