Flames reach up to the heavens as lightning flashes criss-cross the sky. These extraordinary images show the full force of Mother Nature as a Chilean volcano erupts for the first time in 50 years. Ash has been thrown six miles up into the sky and the South American government has ordered the evacuation of thousands of residents.

원자폭탄을 맞은 듯 버섯 모양새입니다.
화산지대 인근 도시는 온통 화산재로 뒤범벅입니다. 마치 함박 눈이 온 듯 합니다. 정말 놀라운 현상의 자연 재해입니다.

Headlights on, a car creeps through a street covered in ash. One could be forgiven for thinking this was a wintry scene covered in snow
It was the latest in a series of volcanic eruptions in Chile in recent years. Chile's Chaiten volcano erupted spectacularly in 2008 for the first time in thousands of years, spewing molten rock and a vast cloud of ash that reached the stratosphere.
The ash also swelled a nearby river and ravaged a nearby town of the same name.
The ash cloud from Chaiten coated towns in Argentina and was visible from space. Chile's Llaima volcano, one of South America's most active, erupted in 2008 and 2009.
Chile's chain of about 2,000 volcanoes is the world's second largest after Indonesia. Some 50 to 60 are on record as having erupted, and 500 are potentially active.
Caught in the sunlight: Beautiful but deadly, the cloud turns fiery red in the sunshine as the eruption continues to belch ash skyward
Smiling lightning: As molten rock and gases are ejected from the core of the volcano below, what appears to be a 'have a nice day' face is formed from the electrically charged air
Protection: Carrying bottles of water and soft drinks this man wears a gas mask to avoid breathing in ash
As darkness falls the centre of this Argentinian town looks like it could be a wintry wonderland in the Austrian mountains

칠레에는 2천여개의 화산이 있고 이중 125개는 활화산으로 이 가운데 60개는 지난 450여년간 다양한 형태로 지진과 함께폭발을 일으켰습니다.
아마도 천지가 개벽하면 이런 모습이지 않나 싶습니다.
