Photographer's Note

I took this shot with the car at around 80kms. I could not convince my husband to stop the car as he was going to be late for work, so I had to just do my best to get a decent shot with the car driving at around 80kms. I cropped the image a little just to cut a bit of sky.
Mt. Ngauruhoe is number 13 in the 101 Must do NZ attraction by the AA.
It is 1 of the 3 volcanos of the North Island's central plateau. the other 2 are called Ruapehu and Tongariro.
Mt Ngauruhue was digitally altered in the movie Lord Of The Rings to make it apper as Mount Doom, home of Sauron.
