"Fresh" lava rock in Kalapana, HI on the Big Island. We drove down here hoping to find Lava but instead got to walk around on a rock that is only a few years old. Most of what you see here is actually less than 1 year old.

This area actually used to be a subdivision that was completely covered and destroyed in 1990

This is a 90 image HDR panorama (3x10x3). Merging to HDR was done with Photomatix Pro, stitching was done with Autopano Pro. The file was tonemapped with Photomatix Pro and then adjusted in Photoshop. The final image weighs in at 425 megapixels.
