Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by عبدالمجيد الجهني

The sunset seen where is the Lava flows meeting the Pacific Ocean. it is a great place where you can see how the earth formed in the first place. you can see the ocean waves hits the lava and after certain time. the lava solidify and become hard rocks. the white steam is highly toxic sulfuric acid fumes. You can see one guy at the right is sitting next to the fumes to enjoy the seen.

Location: the big island, hawaii, USA
