That is a really cool shot

It is quite an optical illusion. You can also see the reflection off of individual ice crystals. Is the grey caused by what I think it is?

Perhaps I'm picky, but I wouldn't call that sastrugi. What's on the photo is per definition penitentes.
Here's a photo of a huge penitentes field.
Another view of the field.
