Dramatic Timelapse Captures the Stars Above Lava Flowing Into the Ocean
Photographer Jack Fusco just released a spectacular timelapse that combines several of mother nature’s more beautiful elements to powerful effect. It turns out lava flow + ocean + stars = some seriously dramatic timelapse action.

With just three days to shoot and some seriously uncooperative weather at first, Fusco and the Macphun team had to draw on all of their reserves of patience and perseverance to pull this timelapse off. You can catch the video above, and read an in-depth behind the scenes account of the whole adventure over on the Macphun blog.
