December is one of the coldest months in this high altitude region. The branches of the fir trees are embellished with water crystals that form a thick snow layer. It’s an absolute silence, magnified by the frozen landscape. From time to time, this is disturbed by a slight breeze of wind, which is rustling through the firs, but not strong enough to release their branches from the snow weight.
The image was created with a Nikon D60 camera and Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX lens, using these settings: focal length – 19 mm, exposure time – 1/80 sec, ISO 200, lens aperture – 8.
