CFFC: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fire

Another in the Elements series.  If these photos aren’t Fire, I don’t know what is.

Kilauea erupting

This is Earth’s Primordial Fire, the eruption of the Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii in July of 2018.  This lava formed in the literal fires at the center of our planet, and the movements of the tectonic plates that ride on the surface of the Earth’s crust cause weak or thin spots where the lava escapes.  Our planet has many active volcanoes, from ancient ones like Etna and Vesuvius in Italy (where we have written and preserved records of eruptions over thousands of years), and brand new ones like the unpronounceable ones still being born in Iceland.  It is the experience of a lifetime, being able to watch nature creating new land.

And here’s another kind of fire, the one which enables us to live on our planet.  The Sunset, observed from the Santa Monica Pier in California.
