Taranaki Peak
Lens: Da* 55 Camera: Sony A7R Photo Location: New Zealand ISO: 125 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F19 
Posted By: disco_owner, 09-22-2015, 01:21 AM

I remeber walking up the track with a Heavy backpack on my back and sweat pouring out of my face, occasionally stopping to take a Breather. 2.5 hours of climbing and I finally stopped 4 steps short of the finish , Took a Breather and continued to complete the Walk.

It was a Great feeling to get to the Top. Weather was absolutely horrible with heavy wind and rain once we arrived at the hut a short break,We Climb to the point where the Taranaki peak was supposedly shot from but visibility was poor so climbed back down to the Hut to stay for the night.

Next morning for a Very short duration the clouds cleared and a very short time to capture the Beauty of Taranaki.




Thank you for watching...
