Picture of the day - February 4, 2009


Photo of a gorgeous winter scene from Tilburg, The Netherlands.

The cold chill of winter can turn an ordinary landscape into a magical scene that looks like it came straight from a story book, and in today's picture photographer Peter Mathijssen has surely captured a masterpiece. This is the view that greeted Peter as he gazed out his window in Tilburg, Holland a few days ago, so he picked up his camera and captured this image for all of us to enjoy as well.

Here are the camera and settings used to create this photographic masterpiece:
    Camera: Olympus E-400
    Focal length: 61mm
    Shutter speed: 1/250 second
    Aperture: f/6.3
    ISO: 100

    We routinely see scenes such as this up here near the Canadian border, but I have never seen such a wonderful picture of one before. Awesome job Mr. Mathijssen!

    What a great winter scene. The light and shadows in this well done composition really capture your eye. Many thanks to Mr. Mathijssen for braving the chilly temperatures to share that beautiful scene with us.
