      Lava Kiss: My husband and I, hiked up to what was formerly the Royal Gardens subdivision above Kalapana, Hawaii, where the last standing house was just recently taken over by the active lava flow. While waiting for the rain to pass, we started taking back-lit portraits. For the last photo, my husband spontaneously dipped me in a kiss. It was a truly once-in-a-lifetime moment!

      Hottest. Kiss. Ever. This kiss is hot in every respect. The dip, the lava, the rain. This amazing shot shows photographer Dallas Nagata and her husband Ed White embracing in front of lava (she had her friend press the shutter and another friend holding the speedlite behind them), and it’s been making the rounds online ever since it was featured in the Atlantic’s ‘In Focus‘ gallery (which highlights some nominees for the 2012 National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest).

    ♥ ♥Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

    Sometimes a picture capturing the moment right before a kiss can be more romantic than a picture of the actual kiss.
