This was taken from over the other side of Lake Taupo with a very good Zoom Lens on my Canon 7 D.
It was one of the first days yesterday when you could actually see the snow of the Tongario National park.
You could see all 3 Mountains in the Tongario National park across the water. Mt Ruapehu, (which has 2 peaks), Mt Tongario and Mt Ngaruahoe.
All 3 mountains are active volcanoes and can erupt at any time.
In the winter months there is often skiing for the rich and wealth on Mt Ruapehu.
