Glowing ropy pahoehoe lava from Kilauea volcano (Hawaii) at night (Mar 2017).
This type of lava texture is commonly found on the Hawaiian shield volcanoes which produce vast lava flow fields of relatively fluid basalt lava. Kilauea volcano is the best location to observe this fascinating type of lava in activity from close.  (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

The lava field surface is full of plate-like structures like this one: a part of the surface of the flow had been lifted up by about 30 cm, caused by still active lava underneath while a small amount of lava oozed out from the base of the suture. This process is called inflation and contributes by far the largest volume to the growth of pahoehoe lava flows. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
