A sea of lava, that is. It stretches as far as you can see and beyond.

This must feel like you're on the moon is somewhere like that. I haven't seen the movie The road, just read the book but this makes me think of the desolation that reminds me of that story ^^

Great view to the horizon. Dramatic shot - looks like a seabed with the tide out!

an almost surreal landscape, stark and forbidding!

It does look almost like wasteland, but a very beautiful capture.

Now that really is like another planet...

Great textures seen in the lava. The evergreen adds a softening touch. Is the evergreen growing through soil or the lava as well? Great DoF, too.

@Steven: There are places where the lava has broken down into soil over the centuries. Hence, the plant growth. But pine trees being pines have probably sent tap roots deep into cracks and crevices in the lava as well. In some places though, the lava is unbelievably deep with layer upon layer. It seems it will be centuries more before plants will flourish in such places.
superb b&w landscape photo! great tonal range and very good sharp fine details! very well balanced and controlled light as well - nice work!
12 Jan 2011 2:30am
Nice contrasts. This is quite a solid "sea" alright. Beautiful.
