The perfect coin of Taranaki Volcano (Mt. Egmond) - 2518 m high is the most prominent feature of SW part of New Zealand. It is one of the wettest places in the country with c.a. 7000 m of annual rainfall. I was very lucky to see it actually.
Waitomo Cave is one of the most amazing places in New Zealand. It is usually called the Glowworm Cave as is inhabited by a small insects which provide truly spectacular experience as they look like stars on the cloudless sky. Unfortunately taking pictures inside is strictly prohibited so I was able to shoot the entrance and a small creek flowing into it.
