Mother Nature always wins no matter what. It goes without saying that we need Mother Nature, but Mother Nature definitely doesn’t need us. Witnessing a natural disaster first hand just proves to us that nature will always rule humans. Sometimes, these unbelievable moments are captured on camera. Read on ahead to see some images of volcanic lightning, intense floods, lava, wildfires, and beautiful displays of light and color.
When you realize how much damage nature can cause, you might think twice about driving around in the middle of a storm, and respect the fact that nature can destroy everything in its path.
40. Volcanic Lightning
This volcanic lightning looks like an electricity-filled spiderweb upon first glance. Mother Nature is powerful, and it’s proven that with this apocalyptic-looking phenomenon. This occurred in a volcanic plume when a column of ash spewed into the sky. It occurs when densely packed particles rub against each other, which electrically charges them. When the positively and negatively charged particles separate, lightning tears through the plume that connects them (via The Travel).
