Weekend LAVA FIX!!!

Here’s a collection of hot textures to wrap your mind around!  Enjoy!

The apex of a large breakout creates these trailing tails over the molten pahoehoe. Hot stuff!!
The surface of a narrowing river of lava wrinkles up as it begins to cool. Way cool, don’t you think?
The finely braided surface of this river fractured in slabs as it accumulated at the base of an embankment, creating a quite the abstract.
A beautiful skylight gives us a glimpse of the fiery internal cavity of an active lava tube. The darker flakes are being blown into it by the rotor wash from the helicopter.
The leading edge of a lobe, with its already hardened crust fracturing into pieces as it advances over a jet black pahoehoe flow.
