Photographer Speaks Up When Tourists Almost Ruin It for Everyone


Thomas Heaton is a landscape photographer and has a nice photography YouTube channel. He and his wife recently travelled to Hawaii where the landscape opportunities are endless. While documenting their adventure to Kilauea volcano for his YouTube Channel he encountered an onslaught of tourist. This is to be expected at such a beautiful and popular site but when people started ignoring the rules of roped off areas Thomas started to lose his cool.

The areas are roped off, not only so everyone can enjoy the view, but also for their own protection. The rocks are incredibly slippery and of course they're very close to an active and spewing lava flow. Thomas is left with a decision to make. Stay cool and ignore them despite blocking his view and disrupting everyone one around them, or do what he really doesn't want to do and speak up? He decided to speak up.

Check out the video above for some cool views of Kilauea and watch fools perpetuate the horrible stereotype tourist have.
