Italy based photographer Niccolo Bonfadini captures a stunning photos of wintery seasons when trees are entirely overwhelmed by snow and ice in Subzero temperatures. Off course snow is nothing new to wintry weather but the cloud-like shells in every image mask the trees in a frosty armor with nothing but snowy grounds surrounding them as far as the eye can see. The setting alone is remarkable, but the photographer’s acute eye and patience deals a naturally surreal view of a frozen landscape.

With temperatures ranging from -40°C to -15°C Niccolo Bonfadini has managed to snap stunning shorts of frozen trees as though they are alien creatures emerging from the ground, when he traveled to the Finnish Lapland in the cold of winter. He insists that the bitter cold was truly bearable, given the lovely view. The professional photographer patiently camped out on the scene and awoke early enough to set up his camera for some truly remarkable shots of the landscape just before sunrise. One of his images, titled Sentinels of the Arctic, even wound up catching the eye of NASA as the Astronomy Picture of the Day.
