Storms Lightning

Volcano Erupting in Chile. Pretty much the coolest thing I've ever seen. What's in the middle of it Volcano erupt in Chile night lightning

Crepuscular rays (sun rays) ~ are frequent occurences during twilight hours when the contrasts between light and dark are the most obvious.

Exactly why you should not stand under a tree in the rain. Wow - the lightning strike follows all the way along the roots... we've had a lot of lightning here in Houston the past two weeks. Glad I wasn't hanging out under that tree at the bus stop.

Awesome rope tornado

Storm: Waterspout is an intense columnar vortex (usually appearing as a funnel-shaped cloud) that occurs over a body of water, connected to a cumuliform cloud.

And I can't even get ONE good lightning shot! LOL This amazing lightning composite was taken in Ikaria Island, Greece. Photographer Chris Kotsiopoulos combined 70 shots to create this image.

Spectacular pictures of nature at its wildest, captured by the storm chasers who risk their lives to follow twisters

What Really Happens When Lightning Strikes Sand: The Science Behind a Viral Photo b y Kyle Hill, scientificamerican: Every time we get it wrong, it’s a missed opportunity for education. When lightning strikes sand, it can create something beautiful, but not this viral photo of an amazing sand sculpture by sandcastlematt http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandcastlematt/388839090/ #Photography #Viral

Fulgurite - Sand hit by lightning. This picture is not Fulgurite by the way.This is a stick with wet sand on it.Fulgurite is usually found in the ground where lightning has struck and is usually very small glass tubules.

Holy crap this waterspout is enormous

Waterspout In Tampa Bay taken by Photos de Jeremy Kappell WDRB .Waterspouts, for the unfamiliar, are basically water-tornados, often weaker than land tornados but still completely terrifying. As is the case with this waterspout, which hit Tampa Bay.

Icy Finger of Death Filmed for the First Time Like a lightning bolt hurled down from Mount Olympus, an icy “finger of death” strikes at sea life beneath the Antarctic ice shelf in what is surely one of the most jaw-dropping natural history sequences ever filmed.

'Fire Rainbows' are neither fire, nor rainbows, but are so called because of their brilliant colors and flame like appearance. Technically they are known as circum-horizontal arcs, optical phenomena due to ice haloes formed by plate-shaped ice crystals in high level cirrus clouds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circumhorizontal_arc Image source unknown #Weather #Fire_Rainbow

Fire rainbows are the rarest of all naturally occurring atmospheric phenomena. For a fire rainbow to occur, cirrus clouds must be feet in the air with the precise amount of ice crystals, and the sun must hit the clouds at 58 degrees. (a/k/a Sun Doggies)

This is a rare meteorological phenomenon called a skypunch. When people see these, they think it's the end of the world. Ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward, punching a hole in the cloud cover. Freakishly weird!

The ending of a tornado. Somehow this looks more sinister to me than typical tornado photos, and I like tornados.
