This Japanese hiker has probably crossed a monumental feat off his bucket list, as he was able to snap a photo of himself in front of an erupting volcano.
According to Japanese broadcaster RKK Kumamoto, the man decided to hike near the summit of Mount Nakadake, one of the five peaks of Mount Aso, which happened to erupt as he was about to take a selfie. “When I was looking through [my camera], the white smoke turned black, and after about three seconds, I heard a swooshing sound,” the man told RKK, according to Futurism. “I was scared. I never thought I would encounter such a thing.”
