    Link Chile Volcano

    Nothing to do with mapping but I saw these pictures today of the volcano erupting in Chile in the middle of a lightning storm. It looks incredible. Anyway, here's the link to some pics:

    Holy Cow!!! That is incredible! Are you certain that is a real pic? It looks a little PhotoShopy to me, but I have been surprised by nature before. That almost looks like something that would spawn life or something.
    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    It's a beauty. Reminds of how I imagined Mordor looked when Frodo cast the ring in (before the films were made).

    No, 100% real apparently. UPI pictures is a professional photo-journalist site from what I can see and that picture has been bought by a few of the big UK broadsheets so I doubt it is photoshopped.

    It is phenomenal though. That's about as cataclysmic an event as you can get in one place. Now all I have to do is figure out how to use that for this month's mapping challenge

    Wow! Too bad it is watermarked it would make a great desktop wallpaper.
