Since May 3, the Kilauea volcano erupts in Hawaii : the lava destroyed dozens of houses, more than two thousand people were evacuated from the region, and the cracks spread 40 kilometers from the crater.

On May 16, journalists photographed the Hawaiian golfers, who played against the background of a cloud of dust and an erupting volcano. The management of the club explained that from the area until no one was evacuated, but the residents still “do not feel in danger.”

As noted by the publication The Loop, the picture was simply taken from a successful angle: the golf club is located three kilometers from the volcano, and the last two weeks the wind blows in the opposite direction. “In the photo, the volcano looks very close, but it’s not so,” the company’s management said.

Similar photos have already become viral before. In September 2017, forest fires raged in Oregon , and a local publication photographed the golfers amidst a vast fire. In fact, people were completely safe.
