Hot creation: Flickr photo of the day


When the volcano Pu ‘u ‘Ō’ō, [poo-oo oh-oh] erupted in November 2012, photographer Jason Tomlinson was there, on the Big Island of Hawaii, to photograph it. Tomlinson, from Richland, Wash., makes his living studying the impacts of man-made pollution on the weather and the climate of the Earth.

What he saw the night he captured this image wasn’t pollution, but creation. When the molten hot lava cooled in the waters of the Pacific Ocean, it created more land. His 15-second time exposure allowed movement in the boiling surf, and glowing lava, rendering an image of primordial beauty.
