Mt Ngauruhoe (Mount Doom)
Lord of the Rings fans will know Mt Ngauruhoe as the epic volcanic force that brought Mt Doom to life. But during the winter months in New Zealand, Mt Ngauruhoe is covered in snow making it a wonderful cone shaped mountain to photograph against the awesome colours in the sky.
Mount Ngauruhoe is an active stratovolcano or composite cone in New Zealand, made from layers of lava and tephra. It is the youngest vent in the Tongariro volcanic complex on the Central Plateau of the North Island, and first erupted about 2,500 years ago
