Lava Plume Funnel
This plume is the result of a massive volume of molten lava shooting out of a lava tube that lies within the lava I am standing on while taking this photo.
The lava explodes as it hits the ocean water resulting in tremendous heat, steam, sulfur gas, glass particles, rock and sand. So much turbulence often spawns heat tornadoes or water spouts. This spout is about 100-feet long.
