Photographer's Note

This is the first glimpse you get of Mt Taranaki (also called Mt Egmont) when you approach by the Mangorei Track. The track goes up the slope of Mt Pouakai, mainly in forest. Towards the top this view opens up at a break in the forest, with Taranaki's summit peeking over the summit ridge of Mt Pouakai.

I had to underexpose the telephoto shot so as not to burn out the bright snow on the summit. I brightened up the forest a bit in Photoshop, but not too much. I wanted the snowy mountain top to stand out against everything else.
