Tornado + lightning + fire = awesome [Amazing Photo of the Day]

We have seen tornado. We have seen lightning. We have seen fire (sort of). But we haven’t yet seen tornado, lightning, and fire all in the same place at the same time. That will change… now.

The following photograph, which includes a combination of a tornado, lightning, and fire, is of Puyehue Chile on June 5, 2011. Check it out:

Of course I’m sure it isn’t awesome for the people affected by the tornado/fire/lightning, but from the comfort of my home across the pond I can say safely: damn, that is cool.
