Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement


I can only imagine what it is like to stand on the moon but I guess the scene before one would be somewhat like standing in the crater of a volcano.  There are several places in New Zealand where you can do just that, and White Island in the Bay of Plenty is one.  Another is on one of New Zealand’s Great Walks – the Tongariro Crossing.  It’s an eerie feeling moving inside a scoria cone with sulphurous steam, acidic streams and boiling mud pools all around you, while you stick to the marked paths for fear of breaking through the brittle surface.
