A volcano is an opening, or rupture, in a planet’s surface or crust, which allows hot magma, volcanic ash and gases to escape from below the surface. Volcanoes are generally found where tectonic plates are diverging or converging. These stunning images were captured by the lover of Volcano named Miles Morgan who is a photographer by profession, who risks his life and limb taking the images of the most scariest and the life threatening events. These images are taken from the Most active volcano in Hawaii. He captures the molten flows of the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island. Miles said- The eruption of the volcano is very hot and unbearable. he says The time when we went near the volcano it was dawn and the first rays of the sun lit up the ground. I had set the timer of the camera and went near the flow of lava. Waves of the heat scorched his face. Because of the smoke coming out from the volcano he started to cough. And also the temperature of the lava was so high that it began to start melting his shoe soles. Miles started fearing because of that. but it was just a memorable spectacle and an amazing expereience for Miles.
Photographer Miles Morgan has to get dangerously close to the lava flows of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii to get incredible pictures like this.

On the Hawaii’s Big islands Kilauea volcano’s height is around 4100 feet and it is the most youngest and the most active volcano.
It erupts continously since 1960th years.The lava which flows from the volcano covers the distance of six miles to the Pacific Coast in a period of four hours.
miles had managed to capture the moment with his 1st contact with the lava surface.
Miles say’s “When You are at a distance of 200 yards from the ocean there is quite serious danger.
the land on which you actually stand,and also the land under your feet is actually a hardened lava.
There are lumps of lava which are falling in the ocean.

When you go to the lava which is a very thin and a cooled crust which may be gaps in anytime will break and the chance of salvation have not been left.
We must also take into consideration about the toxic and the harmfull gases.it is creating a smoky cloud and its also creating a suffocation. There is lot of people who have died this way.

Gases being emmitted into the air which causes suffocation to the people and also creating a smoky cloud.
Hot lava which is going into the sea also polluting the sea water and creating a smoky cloud and suffocating environment.
Kilauea has been spewing lava continuously since 1983, making it the longest rift-zone eruption in the last 200 years.
