The Ngāuruhoe summit of the Tongariro volcanic complex is in the foreground, while in the background is a weak plume produced during the 1995-96 Ruapehu eruption, dispersing to the SW. The scoria cone within the Ngāuruhoe crater largely formed during the 1954-55 eruption and produced lava flows down the NW to W flanks.
