Volcanic Eruption in Chile

Not sure if this belongs here or in O.T., but there was a large volcanic eruption in Chile yesterday.

Wow.
We walked to the top of the highest volcano in this region back in January. Seems we got our timing right!

BREATH TAKING! Especially the lightning pic!

Terrible for the country of Chile, and no doubt Argentine.

Re: Volcanic Eruption in Chile

Great photos. Wonderful subject, but really look at the photography! We do have wonderful photographers in the world. The photo where the sun set is so close the red light is coming up under the cloud. The phot with the lightning looks like the Riders of the Appocolyse are about to storm out. Can't do that on a normal camera.

No matter how tough we think we are the majesty of nature can totally amaze us
