Tarawera Calm Landscape Photography Prints


Tarawera Calm

New Zealand Landscape Photography Prints by Stephen Milner

Lake Tarawera is one of the best places for a view of Mount Tarawera. Finding a position for a good photo of the volcano is not easy. On this evening, I spent may hours scouring the lake edge to find a nice view point over the lake onto Mount Tarawera. I remember this sunset evening well, the sky was clear, and then just before sunset the clouds rolled in. However, as the sun set there was a break in the cloud and the sunset colours came through. I quickly loaded some Fuji Provia 100 into my Hasselblad 503CW to take this photo. It is an experience and view I will never forget and I hope you enjoy it too 

Mount Tarawera is part of the Okataina Volcanic Centre and is 1111m high. The Okataina Volcanic Centre was created 400,000 years ago and collapsed 64,000 years ago. Many lakes were formed after the area became a caldera. Further eruptions caused the caldera floor to build back up into dome volcanoes. Eruptions that created Tarawera started 18,000 years ago. It has three dome peaks and a central fissure created by its latest eruption of 1886 and was the largest in New Zealand during the last 500 years. Okataina Volcanic Centre eruptions occur; between 700 to 3000 years. Caldera eruptions are 100 to 10,000 more destructive than cone volcano eruptions. The 1886 eruption created a 17km long rift through the summit of Tarawera, through a nearby lake and into a local valley. The Te Wairoa village was completely buried in mud and ash. The world-famous Pink and White Terraces were lost into surrounding lake beds. There were 100 deaths recorded.
