Sulfur smoke emerging from Kïlauea Volcano, Hawaii.

Smoke of the Kïlauea Volcano, in Hawaii, is charged with sulfur, which makes it white with tints of blues. The layering of natural elements, following the rules of thirds, makes this photograph eye-catching. Forest in the foreground and the heavy sky in top third part are framing the volcano in activity.
