Photo Details

  • Title: Fire In The Sky
  • State/Province/Region (required): Hawaii
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Area: Jaggar Museum
  • Nearest Town: Volcano
  • Description: This shot was taken south of Jaggar Volcano Museum at about 12:00pm using a 25 second exposure at ISO 400 at f/3.5 with lens set at 15 mm. Most people shoot for 5 minutes from the Museum, but my buddy and I shot two nights in a row for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours each night to get the great color in the sky, stars, clouds, and of course, the quickly changing eruption of Halemaumau. This active crater is inside of the much larger Kilauea caldera.
  • Brief Directions: Take Hwy 11 south from Hilo to Volcano and follow the signs to the Jaggar Museum.
  • Notes: Our family and my best friend's family travel to the main island of Hawaii each year in late winter - early spring. My buddy and I always spend a couple nights at Halemaumau, which is within the much larger Kilauea caldera. Skip the crowds of people that show up at around 8 or 9 in the evening. Start shooting at 11:00 pm when the light is better.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: Canon 7D, Canon 15-85 mm IS, Velbron 530 tripod with Acratech GP ballhead
