This Photographer Is On Fire

This Photographer Is On Fire
This photographer's floor is literally hot lava. Kawika Singson of Hawaii was surprised last week to find that this snapshot of himself on a cooling lava floe—while his shoes and tripod flicker with flames—turned into an actual viral internet event. Lots of folks were convinced that the shot was fake, but I think it's pretty clearly real. The Hawaiian photographer with a penchant for photographing volcanoes says he thought it would be cool to take a picture with his shoes and tripod on fire. "It was really hot," he says. "I could stand the heat only for a few seconds." Would you be surprised to learn the photograph made Google Plus's "What's Hot" section? https://www.facebook.com/kawika.singson/photo is his facebook page.
