Volcanic Vortices

WINNER
2012 Power of Nature
Windland Smith Rice International Awards
“On an early morning shoot at the Waikupanaha ocean entry, lava from Kilauea volcano poured into the sea, creating a huge steam plume that rose with such velocity, it generated multiple vortices as it billowed upward into the sky. A vortex or two is a rare sight... but when one after another kept forming, my fumbling with the lenses turned into a panicked rush to switch to my wide angle to be able to capture this incredible scene of seven vortices in a row!”
