|Lava flows over a newly formed black sand beach, during twilight.|
|The lava flow glows brightly in the twilight, producing copious quantities of steam when it meets the ocean.|
|New land is created along the coast of the Big Island.|
|As the twilight fades, the glow from the lava as it enters the ocean becomes magnificent.|
|A toe of molten lava slowly approaches.|
|Large clouds of steam are produced as the lava enters the ocean.|
|A group of sightseers watch the lava enter the ocean.|
|A strong wind produced this wave-shaped cloud as the lava entered the ocean from the Kilauea volcano.|
