Photographer's Note

Description
Taken on the Kuntivaara fell very near the Finnish-Russian border.
The weather was very dramatic with snow storms and sunshine intervals. Scenery was no less dramatic with ice and snow covered trees on the top of the fell. I took a few picture and I believe this is the best one, really showing the special atmosphere that day.
Since spring was nearing you can notice some of the tree tops show through their cover.

Info below was found here
Kuntivaara is fairly high, 481 m above sea level. It is located near the Eastern border, and from its top one has a breathtaking view to the fell tops in Salla, Iivaara in Southern Kuusamo and across the Russian border. The slopes of Kuntivaara are fairly steep, but there is a relatively easy access along a path leading to the top from the Eastern side (the length of the path being appr. 2 km). There is a Lappish kota-type shelter on the hilltop for rest and/or shelter. You can get to Kuntivaara from Kuusamo along Vuotunki road (8690); take the road to Sδrkiluoma after Jyrkδnkoski (before Vuotunki village) and follow the signs for Kuntivaara.


Tech Note
The key thing in this image is a slightly different levels change to the sky and the trees.
Also some sharpening and shadows/highlights
