Interesting Photo of the Day: Diamonds in the Snow

If you have a creative eye, you don’t need lush green meadows or golden hour light to take wonderful landscape images. Even a cold moonlit night with snow covered trees can do magic. Well, that’s what we can deduce from the following image by photographer Jari Romppainen:

The trees with their barren branches covered in thick snow give a hint of how harsh the winter has been. Even the blue color tone gives a sense of the cold weather conditions in the area. But the soft blanket of snow shining under the moonlight like diamonds, on the other hand, gives a magical feel to the place. And again, by using a slow shutter to show the movement of the clouds, Romppainen has added a dynamic feel to the moonlit sky.

Truly a spellbinding piece of work by the photographer.
