Stunning footage of lightning in a volcanic ash cloud in Patagonia

BBC posted this truly stunning footage of a volcanic ash cloud just bursting with lightning and it’s totally staggering to see. It’s a violent phenomenon but in the picturesque setting of Patagonia, it almost looks like a painting that’s been animated. The burst of bolts almost looks fake.

If anyone has a chance, Patagonia is a must visit place. Tiny little homes, lots of accommodations for English speaking tourists. Beautiful rural areas, glaciers, hiking, and so pristine. I’m telling you, go...go...go!
