Mount Ngauruhoe was the stand-in for Mount Doom in the Lord of the Rings movies but you know that…

This shot was planned using the Photopills app which tells me the what and where etc to get the moon just in the dip between Ngauruhoe and Tongariro where South Crater is on the Tongariro Alpine crossing great walk. What it doesn’t tell me is what the weather will be like…thats in the hands of whatever…

As it proved it was a awesome set , just perfect really. Just love it when it all comes together…
