Photo: Cinder Cone Volcanoes New Zealand

The cinder cone of Mt Taranaki, the second largest of New Zealand's volcanoes.

Looking across from the northern end of the North Taranaki Bight at sunset taking in the magnificent view of one of the cinder cone volcanoes of New Zealand. The orange colored sky at sunset silhouettes Mount Taranaki in New Zealand which is the second largest of New Zealand's cinder cone volcanoes.Cinder cone volcanoes are the most common type of volcanoes that have steep sided cones and are much smaller and simpler than the composite volcanoes. They are mainly formed by continual mild eruptions in which lava fragments are ejected. Cinder cones can occur on volcanoes either alone or in small to large groups of fields.Mount Taranaki in New Zealand started to form about 70,000 years ago and the cinder cone volcano has not erupted since 1755.
