Caption   The imposing cone of Mount Taranaki (aka Mount Egmont) towers above the surrounding countryside at dawn on March 21, 2016. The hilly terrain surrounding the volcano was formed by an enormous landslide during a prehistoric cone collapse. The rich land is now covered by productive dairy farms. Due to its symmetrical shape, Mount Taranaki is often compared to Mount Fuji.
