A photographer recently captured a once in a lifetime photos of more than 50 bolts of lightning that hit near the most active volcano in Mexico. The 50 jolts of lighting hit the volcano in a span of 5 minutes during a storm dubbed ‘The Night of a Thousand Forks’.
Photographer named, Hernando Rivera Cervantes, 37, said that he captured the photos near the 13,000-foot tall Colima Volcano in Colima on Tuesday night.
“The night was crazy, all the locals are calling it the Night of a Thousand Forks. It kept everybody awake all night and there was lots of rain too. The sound was enough to keep the whole city awake,” Cervantes told SWNS.
The photographer than combine the picture to show how the whole sky was lit up as forks of lightning struck at different points. And trust me, this is one of the best things I have ever seen.
“I have been fascinated by lightning since I was a child, it has always impressed me with its great energy and light,” he said.
