Volcanic Light

New Zealand Landscape Photography Artwork by Stephen Milner

Mount Ngauruhoe is the third tallest volcano in New Zealand. Mount Ngauruhoe is an active 2,291m stratovolcano in the North Island. It is located in the Tongariro National Park, is an asymmetrical volcanic cone and, regularly emits steam and gases from the peak. It is made of layers from lava flows and ash deposits. Like all the volcanoes in New Zealand, it is the result of the Pacific Plate below the Australian Plate. It is part of the Taupo Volcanic Zone, where the earth's crust has been stretched and thinned. Recent research indicates the code started 7000 years ago. Ash and lava eruptions occurred on average every 9 years but, there have been no eruptions since 1975.

Maori legends speak of the high priest Ngatoroirangi as being caught in a blizzard while climbing Mount Ngauruhoe to claim all the land he could see. Ngatoroirangi prayed to the gods of Hawaiki to save him from the blizzard. They sent flames that first appeared on White Island, then Rotorua, then Taupo. Finally, they arrived at Ngauruhoe and saved Ngatoroirangi. Ngatoroirangi is credited with bringing the benefits of volcanic activity to New Zealand.
