This is a picture of a wooden house in Siberia. This was taken by Vlad Gerasimov who lives in the city of Irkutsk which is situated North of the border with Mongolia and close to the largest fresh water lake in the world, Lake Baikal (20% of the world's surface fresh water that is unfrozen). This one of a large number of images available on a site dedicated to these houses.
Also included is a short tutorial on creating these High Dynamic Range (HDR) photos.
I recommend checking out Vlads other site which has some great illustrations and downloads.
