An Inconceivable Shot
Have you ever put your life on the line just to capture a perfect photo? While we might all think yes, but the truth is we’ve probably never risked our life for a photo. But there are those daring photographers who go beyond their earthly capabilities to get that perfect shot during intense hurricanes, raging war, violent winds and such stuff.
One such person is Mike Mezeul II, who imperiled his life to capture a stunning shot of a lifetime that’s likely to be among the most amazing images of the year.
The adventure photographer risked being eaten by fiery red-hot molten lava to shoot a breathtaking image that you might never see again, or at least not in a very long time. The 32-year-old American from Allen, Texas was out and about in the Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii when an opportunity to capture a startling combination of Mother Nature’s fury and beauty presented itself.
Mike captured a real shot of a lifetime that captures melting lava from the Kilauea Volcano, the moon, the Milky Way and a flying meteor. Yep. Its that crazy.
Speaking of what he witnessed, Mike said: “I was in utter shock! It was my third frame shoot after sunset, and after seeing meteor, it crossed my mind that I couldn’t beat that image, so I packed and left.”
“Watching lava from the Kilauea Volcano stream down towards the ocean to form the newest land on earth as the Milky Way, a meteor and the moon shine above was an incredible moment that I’ll never forget,” Mike explained on his Facebook page.
