Thats a pretty rugged landscape Janice.I climbed it once too.I hear there are some interesting lava caves there. Hell to crawl through though (overall shredders).
Its quite scary how many volcanoes there are dotted around Auckland city.

Very good shot!
I love the contrast between vivid green and dark. I have the same idea as Greg to cut the top, but I would maybe leave more dark area and cut only the green part.
Anyway, I like your idea for this shot very much.

For a moment I was carried away into a phantasy land, and forgot about TN, the picture and were actually "there"! And that is great, very good note, and photo to illustrate same - TFS

Not an easy subject here, with so many different grey shades. Very interesting contribution, Janice, showing that a plant always finds it's way, whatever! Good lesson for perseverance. Grzegorz WS illustrates exactly what would have been my little nit about the framing.

Exceptional post. I always find it so motivating when nature break through in adversity. The WS does improve the compo, but thats my only nit. Well done.
What an amazing photo.New life in the lava.
I love the new plant's strong green color.
Thanks for showing us your side of the world Janice:)

Appart from sharing with us an interesting and unsual subject, I think your note this time is very good. I have had a look at all your recent posts I missed, and enjoyed very much the tour up Rangitoto you brought to us. Thanks!
looks like a'a lava (Hawaiian for the very sharp, type of lava.)
It shows that the Earth, is so much more stronger then us all, but yet there is always a chance and hope for a new and better tomorrow!

Thanks for your photo and note Jancie - I enjoyed both. I'd probably crop some of the top of the image too, but what you've done effectively helps to reinforce the contrasting grey rock.

Janice, this is simple and suggestive.
Great contrast, well spotted.
