Aerial views of Mount Taranaki and the South Taranaki coastline.

I viewed an u tube video of a helicopter flight over Mount Taranaki . The video was taken in the summer and only a small patch of snow remained in the crater. The views of the summit provided rocky images that aren't appreciated from a distance. Painting the mountain can all too easily become cliches but this video provided great images.

I made a view sketches  from photos captured by my cmaera from the video in a lined notebook - didn't have the sense to use a drawing pad. I have intentions of repeating the drawing later - and maybe make some into paintings.

A second video was taken of the South Taranaki coastline taken by a drone-.This video also showed views of the landscape that cannot be appreciated from the ground.
