Winter photographs are some of the toughest to compose as there is no distinct color variation to work with, only the gray-scale. Finding any variation in light is also difficult. A frame with little light allows the texture of the snow to be visible, while a frame with sunlight adds the snow as a source of light.
The way you have used winter lighting in this photo, and others, is great. The haze of snowfall or mist refracts most of the light into the environment, before hitting the blanketed snow, to create an even light.
The contrast in your photo is right on! The spectrum of the gray-scale is fully covered because of this.
The enveloping silence and stillness is felt through this photo, and the anticipation of mysteries that will come while moving through and down the road is exciting.
Well done!

I could not believe that this was a photograph. I looks like a painting with the whites, blacks and greys. But as I looked closer, I could see the snow piled up on the branches of the tree.

This photo was taken in black and white. It has to be. It is the only way I can think of that keeps the blue from showing up on the snow. But the composition is ethereal yet bleak. It give off purity with the cold reality of the world to be overcome. I can see danger in these trees as they bow under the weight of the snow. It is a harbinger of things to come.

I really enjoy looking at this photograph. It is a winter wonderland that is frozen in time. and the more I look the more I can see.
