Photographing red hot volcanoes is definitely a dangerous experience. But with the help od drones it became a little safer, as the pilot/photographer can stay at the safe distance from volcano, and still be able to capture what’s happening inside.
However, flying over the heat of at least 1600°F (yes, this is how hot is lava), you risk your drone, as plastic shell and other parts can simply melt, and the lower you fly, the higher the risk.
Israel-based photographer Erez Marom traveled to Hawaii and captured the magnificent view of hot lava flows. He took some amazing photos, but in the end he spotted that images started getting darker. And after drone got back to him and landed, Erez realized that the plastic around lens has melted. But as photographer said, it was worth it.
Here are some results he got flying and shooting over the lava:
