I’d seen this image floating around of lightning striking while a volcano is erupting but didn’t know who shot it, and I wasn’t even sure it was real. It was such an epic photo that I could actually hear the theme song to Highlander as I stared at it. It had to be real.
It is real, and thanks to Spoon and Tamago, I can tell you the photographer is Takehito Miyatake. It appears a lot of his work involves capturing the wild natural light of Japan. Take a look at some more images below!
