It’s been two weeks now since Hawaii’s Mt. Kilauea erupted and it still shows no signs of slowing down. Since its initial eruption, we’ve seen a lot of videos and photos of its destruction. However, this photo taken by astronaut Drew Feustel from ISS is arguably among the most breathtaking.

Yes, it’s possible. I did indeed capture what you see above in one shot. Although some of the Internet seems to disagree, it’s true. What you see above is the Milky Way, the moon, Mars, Saturn, an iridium flare, and lava from the Kilauea Volcano of Hawaii. I took this image during my visit to the Big Island of Hawaii in September of 2016 to document the 61G lava flow. I never imagined I’d walk away with such a scene, but the camera gods were watching over me that day. So, before this image gets torn apart by those who think it’s not real, I’d like to present the RAW image to you below. This image was shot on a Nikon D810 with a Nikon 14-24mm lens. Settings were F2.8, 25” at ISO 2500.
There has been a steady flow of photos and footage from Hawaii’s Mt. Kilauea since it erupted a few days ago, but this time-lapse video is probably one of the most intense we’ve seen so far. Taken by WXChasing, it shows slow-moving lava slowly devouring a Ford Mustang parked on the side of the street.
One of the world’s most active volcanoes, Kilauea in Hawaii’s Big Island, erupted on Thursday. The eruption is threatening hundreds of homes, as molten lava is bursting from fissures that opened in the Leilani Estates. Mick Kalber has filmed the eruption from a helicopter. It shows the biggest fissure eruption he has seen so far: it is impressive, but at the same time truly heartbreaking.
Volcano eruptions are impressive and photogenic, as we’ve seen many times before. But a very unusual and spectacular photo was recently shared on United States Geological Survey’s Twitter page. It shows a lava dome rising up to 65 feet (20m), and it looks like a scene from a sci-fi movie.
The winners of 2017 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year contest have been officially announced. This year, the judges had a task of selecting the winners among more than 11,000 entries from all over the world. The grand prize winner is Jayaprakash Joghee Bojan from Singapore, who captured an orangutan crossing a river in Indonesia’s Tanjung Puting National Park. We’re presenting you with the winning photo, along with the gorgeous winning images in all the categories of this prestigious contest.
Earlier this month, DIYP featured some of the most beautiful lava shots I’ve ever seen. But there was a price to pay for these photos: photographer Erez Marom melted his drone. Seeing the images, I’d say it was definitely worth it. And now, Erez has published the drone footage of the lava flows which caused his drone to melt. And guess what – the video is just as beautiful as the photos.
Photographing volcanoes can be dangerous, but it’s certainly an experience to remember. Israel-based photographer Erez Marom traveled to Hawaii to try it for himself, and he captured the magnificent view of hot lava flows. But there was a price to pay – and he paid with his gear.
He used a drone to get some aerial shots. But at one point, he got too close and the hot lava melted the plastic. Fortunately, Erez still managed to save the photos, and he kindly shared them with DIYP. And although his drone is destroyed – it was definitely worth it.
The Skyglow Project took filmmakers Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mehmedinović on a journey covering more than 150,000 miles. Their goal is to highlight the issue of light pollution. Dark skies around our planet are disappearing, and the truly dark skies are very few and far between. More than just the photographic opportunities, dark skies play a vital role in the planet’s ecosystem, too.
After a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, which became the fourth highest earning Photobook campaign ever, Harun and Gavin begun their three year quest. They shot over three million photos of some of the world’s most amazing sights. From the active Kilauea volcano in Hawaii to Alberta’s Northern Lights, we are taken on an amazing visual journey.
