These photos taken from the world’s highest volcano are simply stunning. Photographer QT Luong decided to hike from sea-to-summit when visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. After photographing the lava ocean entry, he set out to summit Mauna Loa. Upon reaching the top, he created the Hiking Mauna Loa photos series and gave the rest of the world a view we aren’t often privileged to see.
