Lava erupting from Kilauea on Big Island under stars

With the restarting of the eruption on Kilauea late in 2021 I made the decision to fly out from Kaua'i to Hawai'i Island to capture some new lava images. From the main overlook the plume was billowing straight up as the winds were light. That combined with the clear skies allowed for a stunning view.
