Pictures from photo gallery: "Sunset Pictures"

Volcanoes create some of the most magnificent and intriguing pictures that any photographer can imagine especially when the sky turns a golden yellow color at sunset. New Zealand has a high density of active volcanoes and a very high frequency of volcanic eruptions.Volcanoes have been around New Zealand throughout much of the geological history and have contributed strongly to the evolution of the surrounding landscape. Three of the regularly active volcanoes of New Zealand are the White Island, Ruapeh and Ngaruhoe which are all part of the Taupo Volcanic Zone. This particular picture is of Mount Egmont-Taranki which began forming some 70,000 years ago.Besides all the volcanoes and their eruptions, New Zealand is home to major geothermal activity where you can get amazing pictures of geysers, hot springs and boiling mud pools. Always have your camera with you while touring the volcanoes of New Zealand as you never know when you may need to starting snap brilliant pictures of small or large eruptions.Mt Taranaki / Mt Egmont seen from the north end of the Northern Taranaki Bight at sunset, Taranaki, West Coast, North Island, New Zealand.
