PIC BY MIKE MEZEUL II/CATERS NEWS – (PICTURED: Lava flows on the the Kilauea Volcano with the Milky Way a meteor and the moon above) – This photographer managed to score a real one shot wonder by photographing lava, the Milky Way, the moon and a meteor all in the same photo. Mike Mezeul was in Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii when he seized the chance to capture the combination of natures beauty. The fiery red of the lava in the foreground is in deep contrast to the purple and blue hues of the galaxy beyond. In further photos lava is pictured pouring into the sea, creating billows of steam like natures very own foundry. SEE CATERS COPY.
