VOLCANO, Hawaii — The sky is lovely, dark and deep. But these golfers in Hawaii have rounds to go before they sleep.
Stunning photos taken at Volcano Golf & Country Club on Hawaii’s Big Island on Tuesday show golfers coolly hitting the links even as a monstrous ash plume looms behind them.
The eruption of the Kilauea volcano has already destroyed houses, caused evacuations and threatened to wreak havoc on Hawaii’s tourism industry. On Tuesday, a plume of ash from the volcano rose 12,000 feet into the air, dropping ash on sections of the island.
The US Geological Survey issued a red alert on Tuesday warning of an imminent major eruption.
But clearly, not everyone was so worried.
