The photo above is a view of Tongariro National Park, New Zealand from the air. Mount Ngauruhoe (right) is New Zealand's most prominent stratovolcano and is still active. It's actually a secondary vent of Tongariro (craters are seen at left). Lava channels and levees stand out on Ngauruhoe's flanks. The small puff of steam in the upper left is from the active Te Maari craters. Photo taken July 3, 2015.

Photo Details: Photo taken with my Olympus OM-D EM-1 on Manual mode. f/10, 1/400 second exposure, ISO 250. The plane window was dirty so had to do a bit of contrast and levels adjustments.
