Plume, Kalapana, 2009
from the series Kalapana

Kalapana is a town and region in the Puna District on the Island of Hawai'i in the Hawaiian Islands. The area gained notoriety when the 1990 Kīlauea lava flow from the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent destroyed and partly buried much of the Kalapana Gardens and nearby Royal Gardens subdivision. The lava flow that destroyed Kalapana erupted from the southeast rift zone of Kīlauea. Along with the destruction of Kalapana were those of the nearby towns of Kaimū and Kaimū Bay, both of which now lie buried beneath more than 50 feet of lava. The lava flow also created a new coastline.

Eamon is currently at work on this new series of images based on the Kalapana lava flow and the formation of new land masses. He is en route back to Hawaii now.
