  10. Hey Doug, from The eastern/southern side you can see the other island too..
    Hope you like the city, drove me made enough to escape down here !!
     
  11. Hi Krispee,
    Your lucky to have seen Taranaki as Ive driven past it and camped on the Tasman in visual distance, and only got to see it twice out of about 30 times, its always foggy of overcast or bucketing.....:Angry:
    Geoff, Im at home here now.
    The traffics no big deal because I`m self-unemployed so I refuse to deal with it.
    The traffic was worse 20 years ago in my hometown of T.O.in Canada, than it is in GodZone now, so l"Dont worry, be happy!":smile:

    That is beautiful. I love the sky!
     
  18. THX! Harry S.,Dave and Sharon.
    Hey Harry, we still have a couple of LiVe volcanos here on the North Island of NZ. namely, Mt. Ruapehu, which blew its top 6 months ago and White Island, off Tauranga, which errupts often and is always hot.:Devil:
    Sharon, I dodged the sky with a 100mm (4in.) HiTec x8ND filter during camera exposure, top and bottom, along with the 2 stop gradated, to give the sky more grunt.:wink:
