Many, many, many years ago, this volcanic residue was streaming into the Pacific ocean off the coast of what we now call the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii. And this photo was taken only many years ago while I was living there.

I’m not sure about camera or lens since I was using a variety of Nikon bodies and every Nikkor prime lens from 20mm to 135mm. Most zooms were still pretty soft back then.

My color slide film of choice was Kodachrome . . . with all those nice bright colors that make all the world a sunny day. (hmmm!) To get an idea of the magnitude of this dry magma flow, you can see a railing with cars parked in the upper right of the image.
