Awesometacular Volcanic Beauty

This is my second-most favorite volcanic eruption image of all time. This image is of Iceland's Ejyafjallajökull erupting in 2010 which paralyzed air traffic across the North Atlantic and Europe for many weeks. Numero uno on my list is an image from Chili's Chaitén eruption in 2008 which also showed nighttime volcanic lightning bolts scattered throughout the plinian eruptive ash column.
