Mt Ngauruhoe also known as Mt Doom in the movie "The Lord of the Rings"


Picture taken on the Tongariro National Park - Waikato - New Zealand


This was a lucky shot: the mountain was covered by dark clouds for at least two hours and one couldn't even see the base of the mountain. When I finally reached the Red Crater (from where we can also see the famous three emerald lakes, but frozen at this time of the year), the sky started to clear and the Mt Tongariro appeared. What an amazing moment!
