This image was taken during an overnight hike to Pouakai Hut, one kilometre away from this tarn. Pristine views of Taranaki are possible here during calm conditions and I waited for the clouds to clear for an hour with my tripod submerged in the tarn. As sunset approached, the clouds melted away revealing the beauty of Taranaki.
