Hawaiian goddess Pele...

creates a new black sand beach.

Madame Pele's fiery Kilauea Volcano erupts.
Molten lava flows or should I say overflows
all the way to the ocean. Watch out!
Hot lava cools in the ocean,
turns black and crushed by the unrelenting tides.
Thus she creates yet another beautiful black sand beach... 

Happening right now on the Big Island of Hawaii.
It is the ultimate show put on by mother nature.
I've been there a few times yet each time 
I am humbled by my tiny existence in this stunning "hot" Earth.
