I’m sure you’ve all seen some “The Year in Pictures” features in various publications over the past month, and one of the images that struck me was an aerial view of the Kilauea volcano’s lava flow in Hawaii, from took place for four long months from May through August, 2018. But rather than just share this one aerial view (seen below in the top left quadrant), I decided to find three more aerial views and combine them into this collage below, in an attempt to make some abstract art out of real photos. The damage and destruction from this volcanic eruption was very real: it forced evacuations and destroyed hundreds of homes – but it is undeniably quite visually stunning when seen from above like this.
