There is something particular about Saint Petersburg during winter. With just a few hours of natural light, much of the city days unfold in darkness. Yet, around the clock, there is a glow to the city that I always found intriguing.

I finally begin to understand: reflected by the snow on the ground, the light of street lanterns, billboards, and cars illuminates the city from below. The ground is light and the sky is dark, inverting the natural order of things. Snowfall amplifies this inversion. This is what a stroll along Prospekt Nastavnikov, the Avenue of Mentors, teaches me tonight.
