Any locals using their drones to take pictures. If so, post them.
One of the problems with local news pictures I often don't get a idea of the scale of various fissures and lava flows.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Here is a vid (not drone) which does show the incredible size based on trees near the fissures.

Watch at YouTube

Beautiful.
Would be fun to cover a drone in metalized asbestos sheeting, sit on the back porch and roast marshmallows...

Some years ago I visited Kilauea. The lava field was all black, but if you got in just the right position and could look down a crack in the lava 4 -5 feet, you could see some dull red color.

You could not stand anywhere near the black lava for more than a minute or so and you could certainly not get any closer than 15 feet or so.

So, with red hot lava flowing like a mountain river and bright red lava blasting into the air, I can't imagine a drone getting close enough for any meaningful photography.

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
