    This is an astounding photograph, but I don't quite understand what I'm looking at. It's supposed to be a volcano-and I do see the plume of smoke over the trees on the right- but what are all those white lines that look like lightning? Somebody please let me know.-Gary Bruner

    You mean "biblical" in the sense of something contrived and unnatural? Probably not a good comparison.
