Mount Taranaki, New Zealand

Mount Taranaki, New Zealand

New Zealand’s north island is home to Mount Taranaki, or Mount Egmont, a 2,518 meter (8,261 ft) tall active volcano. Taranaki is quite young for a volcano, having become active only 135,000 years ago. Its most recent activity was a mere 160 years ago. Mount Taranaki is the center of the Egmont National Park, the circular tree-line boundary of which can be seen in two of the photos below. Visitors to the mountain can enjoy the Manganui ski resort for skiing and snowboarding. Those more adventurous types can trek to the summit during the summer months. The closest major town is New Plymouth, just north of the mountain, where all types of hotels and other accommodation can be found.

  8. Congratulations on the new title…I have been a contributor with shutterstock since 2004 (id 327) and am almost exclusive here…I like the site and have watched the content grow from thousands to millions.. as a result the new work almost instantly disappears and I have stopped uploading since a while because the new content doesn’t get the chance to be seen and gets lost without acceptable attention.(Thru my experience on the site it affects content badly) I suggest that you give us a chance to advertise our approved work on the main page like a paid light box ( ex : fee is 50 downloads per image per week…) or a banner either on the first page or in internal searches as in google, that way shutterstock and contributors both benefit..sorry for the long post & goodluck with your new job…
