I've never saw real lava :-) Looks great for me, very...black and little scary [if you think about volcanic eruption and temperature of melted lava]. Very interesting combo - note+picture. I like contrast between black lava and green trees. I hope your volcanoes aren't active Janice!
Hi Janice!Nice landscape with interesting note...You'd written exposure time 10/2000 sec.Is it right?or 1/2000?I think it will be better to rise up F.I think you'd great time there,waiting more shots from Rangitoto...TFS
I know nothing about lava Janice and this is really a strange landscape for me. Your note learn me very interesting informations about your corner of the word which is to the antipode of where I live. The planet become so small. You saw a snowflake and I see lava.
Janice! It's great photo. Very interesting and unparalleled!
You know - yesterday I foud book about discovering Australia and NZ. I start to read it today!

What an interesting photo I have never been across to Rangitoto although its been on my must visit list for sometime. Maybe some of your photos will inspire me to make the trip.

Interesting shot Janice,
It's nice to see a thriving forest and the destructive lava in one shot.
I never realised that an area like this could support so many species of plants.....until now.
Excellent notes, Thanks for posting

Three colours and unusual picture. Interesting note.Good saturation and composition. Well done.
Hi Janice, very interesting post. The larva looks great and juxtaposed with the trees makes a strong image of how nature conquers this kind of 'new' terrain. The sky has lost all contrast you can improve shots like this by fitting a graduated filter (dark at the top) that way you can meter off the foreground and the sky won't burn out. Good work.

I'd rather you be there than me Janice. I'd make sure my home is nowhere near this volcano. Nice shot by the way.

Janice, the contrast here is very nice.
Even without a blue sky, the shot is a pleasant one.
