Leaf At Rangitoto Island
Rangitoto is an iconic landmark of Auckland. It's the most recent and largest of approximately 40 volcanoes in the 'Auckland Volcanic Field'. It was formed by a series of eruptions that ended nearly 500 years ago. It's not expected to erupt again although fresh eruptions are likely elsewhere in the 'Auckland Volcanic Field'. It boasts an impressive central crater which may be viewed from the summit or from a path that goes right around the rim. This picture was taken on Rangitoto Island. Apart from the lava fields that frequent this area - the vegetation is always interesting. This photograph was taken while walking to the summit.
