Photographer's Note

A view across Tongariro National Park to Mt Tongariro & the snow capped volcanic peak of Ngauruhoe. Mt Ngauruhoe, an active volcano that has been in a quiet phase since 1974, was, with embellishment, the Mt Doom of the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, and the lave fields around Mt Ruapehu (behind me in this photo) was the Land of Mordor.
