This is an unusual photo.
Because I am not too sure what it is!
It could be some sort of volcano shaped landscape, but then again it could just be a mountain shaped like one.
It is a long way down beneath the clouds.
Aerial photography from such an altitude can deceive the eye and in cases like this, turn up the unexpected.

Those Alps run for miles and miles - and I have no idea where you are flying above the - they all look alike!!
Good shot looking down from the plane onto these majestic mountains. I'm not sure about them being volcanoes though. I think the only active NZ volcanoes are in the North Island
South Island intra-plate volcanoes
Otago and Banks peninsulas are the two main eroded remnants of a series of volcanoes that was active between 20 and 8 million years ago. Banks Peninsula started as an island off the east coast of the South Island, built successively by the two large Lyttleton, then Akaroa volcanoes. Sediments from the Southern Alps progressively filled the gap, and the volcanoes became a peninsula 20,000 years ago.
