Photographer’s shoes catch on fire while shooting volcanic activity

Hawaii-based photographer Kawika Singson has gotten so close to volcanic activity before that he’s seen his shoes go up in smoke, so he thought a picture on hot lava with his shoes and tripod on fire would make a pretty cool shot.

Photographer Chris Hirata, who took this picture of said scene, seemed to admit it was staged when he told PetaPixel, ‘His shoes an tripod did not combust due to lava… That’s all I will say’. Still, the arresting visual might just help to ward risk-taking hikers off similarly dangerous grounds.
