Kilauea at Night

Kilauea at Night

Last night after having a great dinner at the Kilauea Lodge, we ventured back to the Jaggar Museum along the crater rim for a chance to view the hot gasses coming out of the lava pool in the caldera.  We managed to snap over a hundred pictures in the low light conditions and at least some of them came out pretty well. Many were 2.5 second exposures at ISO 3200.

We’re looking forward to some night lava viewing near the shoreline tonight. Should be fun!
