But as we watch nature's own fireworks display and witness the devastation wrought by flowing lava, we've also been able to observe a process that's central to life on these islands. The most spectacular moment of creation is when lava pours into the ocean creating new land and it is here that filmmaker Paul Atkins finds himself getting a shot few have ever filmed - the cataclysmic meeting of 2000 degree lava and 75 degree ocean water - a sight to behold. duration 55:46   SRND51 TVG
