Photographer's Note

Hi all.
This is another photo taken during my trip to Taupo.
This is the village of Little Waihi and the steaming cliffs of Hipaua. Waihi has a Population of approx 70 and was evacuated recently after prolonged rain and geothermal activity threatened to cause a landslide on the steaming cliffs above the village.
The steaming cliffs can be seen above the main cloud of mist.
Lake Taupo itself is a crater formed by a massive volcanic explosion, there was a mountain here before there was a lake. The lake is approx 40 Km long and 24 Km wide so the explosion must have been huge.
In WS a bonus shot taken a day earlier with different light.
Enjoy, Paul.
