This Time-Lapse Shows the Stars Over Molten Lava As It Enters the Ocean

The "Lavalapse" took a lot of prep work and planning to pull off.

Jack Fusco is a maestro when it comes to capturing awesome scenes of the night sky, and his latest shoot involves an active volcano, a sky full of stars, and a bunch of hot lava making its way into the ocean surrounding Hawaii.

There's a pretty interesting behind-the-scenes look at the process over on the Macphun site, which illustrates just how tricky it can be trying to coordinate a shoot that requires mother nature to cooperate.

The resulting time-lapse is pretty awesome to watch. The epic song might be a bit over the top, but the visuals of the stars over the fire and huge plumes of smoke look like something out of a fantasy movie.
