the long view

From left to right, Mount Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu as viewed from the base of Mount Taranaki at the edge of the Egmont National Park.
A difficult light to work with today.
Very nice - fav

Difficult light or not, this is bloody fantastic. Those layers are wonderful.

I love most about 365 is touring the world from my recliner. If something like this had been available when I was younger I might have traveled more. But I have always loved traveling in New England. So no regrets.

You have managed to achieve a lovely layered look of the distant mountains despite the difficult light.

I love the fog hanging so low like this. Etherial feel.
March 3rd, 2019  
Those names, they are the original Seminole ones, right? Do you know what they mean?
March 3rd, 2019  
Nice, in fact very nice!

@alinz Phew, thank goodness for that ;)
@bankmann I know that Ngauruhoe is "throwing hot stones" and Tongariro is about a cold south wind. I'm not sure about Ruapehu but "rua" is two and "pehu" is something like explode...not a reliable way of getting a translation though just by breaking the word down.
@jenp Thanks very much - the fog tends to hang around the back country for half the day. Lazy.

Wonderful layers and view
March 3rd, 2019  
well you have handled it quite wonderfully
March 3rd, 2019  
Wonderful mountains, well handled light but I’d have like it even better in a pano crop with lots less boring sky
March 3rd, 2019  
you certainly mastered the light here. great layering and you even got the sky to match the layers in the land mass.
