it's not common to see the snow falling in Rome; that's why i decided to go out in the middle of the night to take pictures of this unusual event. it’s even more uncommon to see all the streets deserted, no people on the sidewalks, nothing, zero, a perfect moment to take pictures. unfortunately I got fined by the police because I drove in a pedestrian area... anyway it was worth it.

this picture won second prize in the 2012 sony contest, category: "landscape"
