Creative Photography #11 - Lava

I have found another photography blog and am trying my hand at it. Check out Creative Photography. Here is my photo:

This was taken over the big island of Hawaii from a helicopter. The steam you see, is due to lava flowing into the ocean. It was an amazing, as well as, a humbling site. The hardened lava covered the ground for as far as the eye could see. Its destruction was encompassing.

That's very cool! At first I thought it was a shot of a wave washing up onto shore but then once I looked at it closer, I could see exactly what you meant about the lava.

Good luck in the contest this week!

My nephew did the volcano helicopter flight while in HI. I am not brave enough, so I can really appreciate the drama in this.

My question is what is the predominate view of the lava, is it heating the water? Or is the water cooling the lava? The steam is the most dramatic view here...
