Colorblind Photographer Captures Magical Lava Flows

Photographer Sean King captures the beautiful glow of lava-flowing volcanoes against the starry night sky in Hawaii. Despite being colorblind and facing temperatures of up to 2,000F, the determined and dedicated photographer manages to produce awe-inspiring images that boast the fiery radiance of molten rock gushing and streaming down the natural landscape.

It’s unbelievable to think that King has only just recently picked up a camera. He used to be a carpenter in Long Island until he and his wife decided to move away from the noise and littered streets to the tropical Hawaiian town of Pahoa, where he is currently based. King has been thrust into the world of photography on a whim, or as he puts it: “100% by accident.” Seeking to simply take some snapshots of the beautiful landscape to send back to friends, the photographer embarked on a magnificent path that has made him fall in love with both photography and the volcanoes he shoots.
