The Memory of Glow
The summit of Kilauea glowed at night for 35 years, ending in 2018. I feel lucky to have witnessed the haunting red glow at night, and extra blessed to see the Nene flying over. In 2018 the Lower East Rift Zone eruption drained the lava lake, however Kīlauea remains an active volcano, and will erupt again. Until then the glow is a powerful memory.
I'm interested in phenomena that affect the look of the landscape, whether it is the light effects caused by the reflective particles thrown into the air by a volcano, or the strange twilight caused by a storm suddenly and dramatically changing the angle of the sun’s rays and for a moment, relighting the landscape.
