Volcanic landscape near Kīlauea, Big Island, Hawaii

Captured in early April 2017, this lava field lies to the south-east of the active Kīlauea volcano, in one of its major rift zones. The large fissure is where molten lava recently spewed from underground; the landscape is now being recolonised by hardy ʻōhiʻa lehua trees.


~200 photos, 2.5 million triangles, 13-ish 8k textures total.

Definitely shot in a hurry (less than 15 minutes - the minibus was about to leave) and in pretty challenging, super-contrasty conditions with the evening light progressively dying. Trees in the middle are even worse than usual (I think I had about three photos including them in their entirety) so please excuse that. Photos were more than a bit soft and smeary, but considering how hurried I was (a higher ISO and shorter shutter speed could have been an idea) it turned out not too badly.

Another produced-entirely-at-home effort. I've got the full workflow up and running, skydomes and all.

Audio is via, imitating the real thing roughly from memory. I'm sure the species of cricket will be completely wrong. Credits: - "Wind is blowing in the grass of a patagonian plain. Wind is blowing in the trees in background. (Tierra del fuego, Argentina)." - felix.blume - "cricket" - FunkApache

Both are CC0-licensed, but I'm crediting them anyway 'cause they're great.
