Erupting volcano? Fire in the mountains? Not really. These are so-called crepuscular rays. We witnessed this amazing view just before sunrise in Atacama desert in Chile. In the center of the image one see famous stratovolcano Licancabur (19,420 feet or 5,920 meters) illuminated by the sun from behind. Beautiful rays spans across the sky and the sun will appear just in seconds.
