The Grandeur of Nature

This is the Chaiten volcano in Chile erupting. Apparently, just as ice crystals dropping through clouds can generate enormous electrical charges which discharge catastrophically, so too can the friction of ash and cinders in the air. Or so I would conclude from the image.
From a little farther away, the cloud of ash has its own beauty.
