Fissure #8 Lava Fountains, Leilani Estates, Hawaii

My son Aaron and I went up in a doors off helicopter to get a look at the Kilauea lava flows through Leilani Estates. This is perhaps the single most amazing sight I have ever seen in all my years of shooting nature images. Two pilots reported the best flowing lava they have seen in 17 years - lucky timing on our end!
