February 1st, 2011 in Daily

Interesting start to the day, with windows rattling from an explosive eruption at Shinmoedake, which ended up looking like Mordor by the end of the day:

Unfortunately, the rest of the day’s photos were a bit less sensational. Though, I did get to witness the volcanic static lightning phenomenon at Sakurajima last night. Something ominous about the eruptions kept me from hanging around too long to get a good shot… I’ll man up and get something good this week.
