Enduring a subzero night in my bivvy bag on the southern rim of North Crater in Tongariro National Park, I was rewarded with this early morning view of two trampers crossing the crater. To the right is  Kakaramea (1300m) at the head of Lake Rotoaira.

Camera settings: Nikon P7800, f8, 1/250sec, ISO 100.
