Lava Flow, 61G

Aerial shot from the 61G ocean entrance point of Pele lava flow on Hawaii. I had my hands full (I hate left seat controls) on this flight, so this is likely the best image from the afternoon flight.

Nikon D4, 70-200mm VR @ 200mm, ISO 1250 (auto ISO), f/7.1 at 1/1250 sec with -0.3 EV correction to address the clouds. HINT: When shooting from a helicopter, always try to keep your shutter speed at or above 1/1250 sec to freeze the forward motion and vibration of the helicopter.
