21 Photographers Share The Most Amazing Shot They Ever Captured
“Taken in Kosice, Slovakia, The amazing part was the weather system we had just travelled through. Between two mountains it was blizzard conditions, almost no visibility. We travelled a road tunnel straight through the mountain. When we came out the other end of the tunnel and saw blue skies I gasped. To go from near zero visibility to clear blue sky was amazing enough then to see the trees with frozen leaves like this against a blue backdrop was a photo I just had to take.”
