pmcke I agree, I didn't immediately recognise the profile of Tongariro from that angle. But then I did a fly around with Google Earth and sure enough it does look similar from that angle. Then I found this http://www.panoramio.com//photo/18325869 so that pretty much seals it.
Photo should read Tongariro, not Ruapehu.

Matthew It's actually looking south toward Mount Tongariro. Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu are hidden behind the mountain.

pmcke Forgive me if I am wrong but I don't think this is Mt Ruapehu. If it is taken from Rotoira then it is more likely to be Mt Tongariro, but even then it doesn't look familiar. Maybe it is Pihanga or Kakaramea, or somewhere different altogether
