Kilauea Cruising

Last night, we cruised past Kilauea on our way out of the islands.

It was about 11 PM by the time that we arrived at the mountain and quite thoroughly dark, save for the light of the just past full moon shining on the water and the spots and streams of glowing red-orange lava working its way down the mountainside. There were low clouds, so we couldn't see much of the top of the mountain, but there was plenty of activity down below. It wasn't a photo opportunity, though. Jerry had the best camera of the lot of us and it recommended a 15 second exposure with his lens stopped completely open. Of course, that's not really an option on a cruise ship.
