There’s a smell of ozone in the air and thunder booms all around. Every now and then the sky glows in brilliant shades of pink and purple, while flashes of lightning light up the sky. It’s a scene worth capturing for sure, but as one man discovered, it’s not one worth risking your life for.
Nothing on earth is more inspiring than the mighty power of nature. At its most violent, there are volcanoes erupting with lava and ash, earthquakes that topple buildings and split the ground, and mighty tsunamis that carry off everything in their path. Fortunately, these are relatively rare occurrences.
It doesn’t just take events like floods and hurricanes to impress on us how potent nature is. We can see it all around us every day. When you think about it, even a decent sunrise or sunset is pretty spectacular. Probably one of the most impressive natural displays most of us will experience, though, is an exciting thunderstorm.
