A powerful eruption at Colima Volcano in Mexico on December 13th, 2015. That night, the weather was dry and cold, friction of ash particles generated a big lightning of about 600 meters that connected ash and volcano, and illuminated most of the dark scene. Most of night explosions produced incandescent rock falls and lightning not bigger than 100 meters in average. | Sergio Tapiro Velasco/ National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year
