Interesting Photo of the Day: Illuminated Snow in Chicago

If you’re not enjoying winter, you’re not shooting enough. The season is a great time for landscape and cityscape photography, and you don’t need to go much farther than outside your house to find interesting shots.

By shooting with a 1/30 second shutter speed, f/2.8 aperture, and 640 ISO set to a Canon 6D, Ellimis managed to turn this simple in-ground light bulb—otherwise illuminating a flag in the plaza—into something out of a sci-fi film. The beauty of the shot is the simplicity: you don’t need a wide angle or studio lights, just a keen eye for interesting details.
