New on 500px : Mt Ngauruhoe template for Mount Doom by bepenwilfrid by bepenwilfrid

Mt Ngauruhoe North island new Zealand was used by Peter Jackson as a model for Mount Doom. As the mountain is holy for the Maori it was not permitted to film the top of the vulcano. Therefore the Stromboli vulcano was used. The remaining of the scenes were constructed by Computer-generated imagery (CGI). Some scenes were take at the slopes. The “brown lake`’ at the foregrund is a mud-filled top of an old vulcano via Tumblr
