The first thing you no­tice about this im­age is its dom­i­nant colour – that plummy night sky streaked with cloud is really dra­matic. Thanks to the snow, the over­all colour pal­ette is quite muted, but splashes of other colours, such as the blues from do­mes­tic light­ing in the lower third of the pic­ture, and the sweep of yel­low light on the left, pre­vent the pur­ple tones from be­ing over­whelm­ing. The snow also gives the scene a won­der­ful crisp­ness that it just wouldn’t have in the sum­mer, and in so do­ing has trans­formed an oth­er­wise or­di­nary cityscape into a real win­ter won­der­land.
