Capture the Colour Contest 2013

The Capture the Colour photoblogging competition is back for 2013 (ends 9 Oct). For more info click here

Mt Sunday / Canterbury / South Island

New Zealand is known as Aotearoa in Maori which is simply translated to "The land of the long white cloud".

Red Crater is one of several active craters on top of Mount Tongariro in The Tongariro National Park. Tongariro crossing is without a doubt the most famous one day hiking trail in New Zealand.
