|Photos by Richard Schear|
The Lanzarote photos were posted on December 16, actually three days after we visited Haleakala, the 10,000-foot dormant volcano on Maui, and I didn't make the connection then, either. It wasn't until we uploaded the Hawaii photos to our computers that I recognized the same colors we had seen in January, 2009. Just take a look at the first couple of Lanzarote photos HERE.
The big difference is, the clouds seen on today's post for My World Tuesday are just that, clouds. On Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands, the mist in the first photo is actually steam coming from the present volcanic activity below the ground.
There is an active volcano in Hawaii. In fact, on Hawaii, the "big island" but we only saw it at night, from the deck of the cruise ship, Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America. The captain had the ship moving very slowly but, nevertheless, Dick's photos show multiple lines of lava against a black background. It's very pretty, even dramatic, but not very accurate. Mount Kilauea is one of five volcanoes that form the "big island" of Hawaii.
