This picture is very beautiful, but IMHO the strong point of it, more than the subject - which is anyway amazing - is the composition: it confirms my persuasion that square pictures can be very rewarding ones. Try to crop this photo, both in orizontal or vertical shape, and you simply will waste its efficacy!
Merry Christmas and happy new year! Ale
