    Fire, lava, lightning, ashes water and stars make this shot, the most epic shot I have ever made. It depicts the Calbuco Volcano, located in southern Chile, while erupting after a 43 year old nap.

    This is pretty impressive - EPIC! It's got so much drama and intense atmosphere about it, I love it. I particularly enjoy the fact that the fire ball of red/orange smoke/cloud is completely surrounded by the clarity of a starry night sky. The contrast here is staggering. Bravo!
