The top part of the image is the visual testimony to the incredibly powerful forces which shape the skies, including the volatile ones around this impressive volcano. The clouds of different contours and consistencies are sometimes shifted in seemingly conflicting directions, at different heights, in accordance to the latest moods of the ruling winds to reveal clearly these invisible currents in a kind of airborne stratum.

What really caught my attention here was the tidy regimented file of fluffy clouds just below the snowline, moving orderly from left to right and straight into the rage of the mountain’s executive arm, its resident wind. Its force showed no mercy as the victims were turned and twisted and consequently ripped into the smallest of pieces, some of them still visible floating hopelessly around for a while, before departing into oblivion at such a speed it made the whole incident hard to believe.

The result of the carnage on the land below could be observed as a mishmash of fast moving patterns, shades and filtered lights, like the event was a product of play with some heavenly kaleidoscope.

Hard to believe indeed. The real question is how to convey an impression of this kind, one that affects all of your senses to some extent and condense it into one-dimensional media as a photograph is. In fact, it’s impossible. This image is the next best thing.
