It was a truly once-in-a-lifetime moment!”

In Nagata’s word: My husband and I, along with a tour guide and a group of friends, hiked up to what was formerly the Royal Gardens subdivision above Kalapana, Hawaii, where the last standing house was just recently taken over by the active lava flow. While waiting for the rain to pass, we started taking back-lit portraits of each other in front of the lava flow after I set up my camera on the tripod. For the last photo, my husband spontaneously dipped me in a kiss. It was a truly once-in-a-lifetime moment!

  4. AWESOME AMY!!! I was in Kalapana, Hawaii last year and hiked to the ocean for 8 hours and returned at night in pitch black. It’s a great place!! At night is when you appreciate the guide : )

      • It was AWESOME, one of my longest, best and scariest hikes but proud I did it and thanks to that German girl whose feet I kept my flashlight on, and whose butt I was practically glued on top of for miles in the dark. Laughing now. http://wp.me/p2dwKf-wj

  8. OK, Amy, when I finally got the time to SEE your post, my jaw dropped. At first I thought the photographer had put figures into the lava scene but then when I read the truth, my mouth flew open. OMG! Amazing? Can you imagine how it must have felt if a hubby dipped you in a kiss in front of that truly gigantic spout of lava? Goosebumps! Just wowoW! xx Amy
