Volcano eruptions are always mesmerizing to watch. This phenomenon is one of nature’s tour de force of power and destruction. But while volcanic eruptions causes destruction, they are also one of the few causes of formation of new land masses.

While we see volcanic eruptions and lava flows on TV, it is quite a different experience to watch it up close. Because of the dangers of getting too close to the molten lava, few raw video footage are available. But there are daredevil photographers who braved the dangers to get a raw video footage of flowing lave of Hawaii’s Kilauea entering the waters.

Here are some the beautiful photos of molten lava entering the ocean in Hawaii.
