(PICTURED: THE HIGHWAY TO HELL, WITH ERUPTING VOLCANO IN THE BACKGROUND)
This photographer must have thought he was on a highway to HELL taking this awesome picture of a road leading to an erupting volcano. The stunning snap was taken on Creator’s Road, near Pahoa, a small village under threat from volcanic lava flows on Hawaii’s main island. The road in fact had only just been cleared after being covered by previous flows but the cause of that lava – the Pu’u O’o crater – can still be seen ominous spewing fire in the background. Photographer Ed Coykendall took this amazing picture which shows the strikingly bright orange of the volcanic explosion glowing against the pitch black night sky. SEE MERCURY COPY
