The Pace of Formation had been floating around the brainstorm board at Givot Media for the last three years. When a weather window opened up and lava became legally accessible they immediately jumped on a flight with very few logistics in place. Upon arriving in Hawaii, they were mesmerized by the ever-changing landscape and sheer heat that the lava produced. Their guide shared that they could get as close as they could handle, which for him was when he'd singe the hair on his arm. In order to get the shots, they had to get up close and personal with the lava, which hadn't existed only days before. They were walking on a brand new piece of earth. Find more from Givot Media and Instagram and Twitter.
