Photo of the day – Lake Taupo


At the extremely brutal time that is 5am I escaped work and wandered down the shores of Lake Taupo hoping for the chance to photograph Mt Tongariro erupting. Usually the background to this photo would have the three proud mountains, Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu standing tall.

I believe that in spite of yesterdays eruption, the mountains weren’t visible because of low cloud, rather than being obscured by ash.
