The story behind the picture:
Some photo ideas need almost endless patience. Not only taking the photo also the waiting for the right condition is sometimes hard. When I discovered this tree I knew that I had to shoot star trails above it. But in my mind I had a picture with a snowy landscape. With snow not only the stars are shining, even the surface of the snow sparkles. Unfortunately, there were never snow and a clear sky at the same time in the past 2 years. Until this magical night! The conditions were perfect. The moon was half illuminated and the sky was very clear. The temperature dropped to -15°C that night, therefore the camera was completely frozen after 5 hours. The result, the image out of my dreams.
