One of the classical view on the Tongariro Crossing. The famous crater lakes. Every image of these lakes looks different and strangely wonderous, almost moonlike. Its an astonishing place worth seeing and experiencing no matter what the conditions...its woth bringing a camera in the process also ;-)

Very interesting landscape, you are right, it looks like a moonscape, amazing colors and light. Very well composed and seen indeed.

The colour of the lakes is astonishing. It is really a nice place, and your photo is very good. Good point also to have a reference with the people, to imagine the dimensions.

Ensemble de teintes qui se marient à merveille.

Grande foto Arnoud, parabéns.
O verde esmeralda da água é magnífico. A
inclusão do homem na foto ajudou a ter uma idéia da dimensão deste lindo cenário.

That colour is amazing, almost unreal in it's beauty! This looks like something you could see on another planet, but since it's here on Earth it may be even more remarkable. I like the overhead view of the lakes, showing their shapes in the landscape. Great work!

Unusual lake colour like the one in Lake Pukaki. I like the way you included the trampers as it gives the viewer the scale of the place. TFS

Hi Arnoud. Classic walk indeed. When I did this walk I somehow missed this shot. I love the composition and all you fellow walkers add scale. Very hard to get there without company I know. Thanks for sharing.

very nice composition and strange colors this work..

It looks as though you had a good day for the crossing also!
I like how you have cropped the photo. Without the cloudy blue sky it is one step closer to being on another planet! You are right about peoples images of this classic view looking different, an interesting way to see the differences in picture taking with different cameras/people/conditions. TFS!

Hi Arnoud, thanks for the wonderful view with good lighting and superb sharpness. People standing next to the pool are just nice for me to compare the size of it.

You've chosen a great POV to show us these lakes. The colours are beautiful and the presence of numerous people on the trail give us the scale. This looks like an interesting trek.

This place is magical - the mountain scennery and the colour of the lakes. How come I missed this place? On the other hand, how to see everything in such beatiful country in only two weeks?
Very nice capture.
