It is pictures like this that makes photography fun. What began as a new gas vent (fumarole) in Halema`uma`u crater sometime between March 10 and 12, 2008, progressed to be the first explosive eruption in Halema`uma`u Crater since 1924 and the first lava erupted from the crater since 1982. On the date we were there it was spewing out large amounts of ash. This picture was taken early in the morning when the sun just started striking the plume.
