Spectacular volcano eruption caught on camera

Here's a spectacular eruption of Mount Tavurvur in Papua New Guinea. What's cool about it is following the shockwave of the blast, the clouds immediately scatter away and the booming shockwave eventually reaches the people on the boat. Boom, for real.

I like to think of the clouds running away as even Mother Nature gets scared of Mother Nature sometimes.
