    Every year I love to climb the beautiful Acatenango Volcano in Guatemala, my country. I was speechless when I saw for the first time lava spit out from the violent Fuego Volcano. I decide to set my camera in Bulb mode and took a long exposure (89 sec) picture. 2 seconds before the exposure ended two thunders appeared in a far cloud on the horizon. That was just awesome, it's INDESCRIPTIBLE

    This image grabs you by the eyeballs. This would have been an appealing photo without the lightning in the background, but combining two events of nature makes this a striking image. The lesson here: Give your situation time for something to develop. However, you may not be the best traveling partner for your spouse or significant other, as they’ll soon grow weary of your proclamations: “Just give me a couple more hours, I know something will happen.” Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
