I made this photo of fellow Shuttermonkey Zac Mills when we visited Yasur Volcano in Vanuatu (check out the video here ). I waited for the moment when the twilight sky balanced with the exposure of the lava. I asked Zac to stand perfectly still during an eruption of magma, using a long exposure to record the lava as streaking arcs of light. The clouds and the first stars of night emerging in the twilight sky complete the composition and create an attractive complementary color scheme. Canon 5DIV, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 lens, ISO 400, f/5.6, 15 seconds.
