Lava Kiss

Photo: Dallas Nagata White

Photographer Dallas Nagata White submitted this photo of her husband surprising her with a dip and a kiss in front of a Kilauea lava flow in Hawaii:

My husband and I, along with a tour guide and a group of friends, hiked up to what was formerly the Royal Gardens subdivision above Kalapana, Hawaii, where the last standing house was just recently taken over by the active lava flow. While waiting for the rain to pass, we started taking back-lit portraits of each other in front of the lava flow after I set up my camera on the tripod. For the last photo, my husband spontaneously dipped me in a kiss. It was a truly once-in-a-lifetime moment!

The photo was submitted to the 24th Annual National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest, and was picked as the front pic on Alan Taylor's In Focus blog post over at The Atlantic.
