This is a steep Volcano drawn from outside Ferguson Unit 8, Chateaux Tongariro, Tongariro National Park, New Zealand. The weather was very changeable during our stay and this Volcano would appear and disappear throughout the day. This is a quick Oil Pastel sketch done on one of the occasions it was visible and I wanted to show the prehistoric feeling that this steep cone shape and the open crater at the top gives. You can really feel that the earth is still very much alive in places like this and can only hope for a safe passage through the area. New Zealand is a very volcanic and seismically active land.
