Yesterday we saw a stunning photo of winter scenery [1] at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, United States. Today we have yet another stunning nature photo to share with you.

The following photo shows Orion, Taurus, and the Pleiades stars in the background (the sky) with an icefall in the foreground. Combined together these two elements create an awesome photo. Check it out:

Wow! Anyone that wants the above image for their wallpaper can grab a higher resolution version from here [3].

Fun fact: this photo won ‘Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2012′ for ‘Earth and Space’.
