Photographer David Ford got a closeup look at the lava flowing from Kilauea Volcano during a sunrise boat tour.
Ford says they sailed about 200 feet away from the lava, off the coast of Puna in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. He says he could smell sulfur and hear a sizzle as lava fell into the Pacific Ocean.
Lava has been flowing out of the volcano since May 25.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the lava flowed 6.5 miles before reaching the Pacific.
