Spectacular close-up, nighttime shots of the current lava field flowing from Pu’u O’o crater, Kilauea. Lava channels, pahoehoe lobes, and a sunrise. 2 days ago this lava flow reached the Pacific Ocean - the first ocean entry from the ongoing eruption in several years.
Incredible video of a debris flow captured in the Swiss Alps (I think). Note how the edges and front have built up extra-coarse grained material, a common feature in these sorts of debris flows. Also note that it isn’t raining at this site - this debris flow formed from rocks and water being dislodged farther up slope, so remember that as a hazard warning in mountain valleys.
“And isn’t the whole point of things–beautiful things–that they connect you to some larger beauty? Those first images that crack your heart wide open and you spend the rest of your life chasing, or trying to recapture, in one way or another?”
