wow. I really would love to learn how to make such a photograph. Can you tell me how?

Certainly Jitesh, always willing to help.

The core of the image was conceive to capture the stark contrast between the forest of pine trunks and a fresh layer of snow.
Other than regular global adjustments a path blur (filter) was added in Photoshop to give a more ethereal feel to the image and add emphasis to the vertical lines.

A similar effect can be achieved if you don't have PS by using in camera movement as you take the image, but path blur provides more control.

I hope this helps, good luck with your shooting.
