Incredible Photos from the Puyehue Volcano Eruption

by Sara N.

Volcanoes are destructive forces of nature, and when they erupt, they disrupt: work, school, travel plans, lives. But man, do they create some amazing photos. The images below are from the Andes mountains of southern Chile, where the Puyehue volcano erupted last weekend.

Lightning strikes over the volcano.

You can find more incredible images at the Boston Globe's website and information about the eruption itself here.

And never forget to tremble before nature, puny humans.
