You'll be hard-pressed to find a more dynamic setting than at ocean's edge at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park when a river of molten lava is pouring into the Pacific Ocean.

While the "show" during the daylight hours is little more than billowing steam and whooshing as the red-hot lava splashes into the ocean, catch the display after sundown and you'll be treated to a fireworks extravaganza as this video so clearly shows.
