Egmont National Park, New Zealand

With GB being in New Zealand I tend to notice things about those islands which I would not normally have done. This super image is from probably came originally from the NASA site.
Mt. Egmont volcano last erupted in 1755 and is now situated at the centre of Egmont National Park. Park regulations have ensured the survival of a forest which extends at a 9.5 km radius from the summit of the volcano, the result of which can be seen from space in the form of huge dark green disc. This photo was taken during the sts-110 mission, April 2002.
