***EXCLUSIVE*** BIG ISLAND, HAWAII – UNDATED: A boat floating next to lava at the Kilaeua volcano, in Big Island, Hawaii. A VOLCANO-CHASING photographer got as close as possible to a volcano with NO protective gear. At times just a foot away from molten lava that had been in the bowels of a volcano only seconds before, this lava-lover endured melted shoes and tripod to take these extraordinary pictures. Amazingly, photographer Miles Morgan, 41, from Hawaii took his incredible shot using a self-timer on his camera, before he walked as close as he could to the burning heat of Kilaeua volcano on Big Island, Hawaii. The lava flows of this volcano travel the six mile distance to reach the Pacific Ocean in four hours, with Milesí additional shots showing the spectacular moment the elemental forces of fire meets water.
