Earlier this year, after a series of eruptions from the underwater Hunga Tonga volcano, a new island formed in the Pacific Ocean. In March, geologists suggested that the island may be unsafe for humans and would likely sink back into the ocean within months. With the help of Docastaway, a company that provides customers with remote island getaways, 65-year-old Ian Argus Stuart said “fuck it” and spent eleven nights alone on the island. He shot some pretty great footage, including an incredible moment where he finds the first sign of vegetation in the form of a small sprout. Even on a temporary volcanic island, life finds a way.
