Hawaii-based photographer Sean King captures beautiful photographs of lava flows in Hawaii, venturing into locations where lava reaches temperatures of 2000°F.

King acknowledges that his photos often look ‘shopped and slightly fake. The photographer is colorblind, which affects how he perceives the images he post-processes, and the intensity of the colors they end up with once he’s done.
Here’s a short feature Flickr recently did on King and his work:
