Have you seen volcano lightning?

I hadn't and yet these pictures were posted on National Geographic a year and a half ago

'The mingling of lightning and ash seen above may be a "dirty thunderstorm." '
I really do need to start looking at NatGeo on a regular basis as once again there are some f*cked up things going on with this world that I have no clue about. I mean, look at that photograph! It's so amazing, Ed said that when someone takes a photograph this amazing they should just immediately get a million dollars. 'Oh, a picture of lightning, well...we'll take a look at it later....HOLY SHIT!! WHAT THE F*CK IS THIS SHIT?! AND THERE'S A VOLCANO IN ALL THAT LIGHTNING?! well here's your $1,000,000."

Kudos to Carlos Gutierrez/UPI/Landov for taking such wonderful photographs.
