Default Snowcovered Bench on the beach

Came across this bench the other day. I was walking along the coast hunting for motives and there is this public beach, crowded with tourists in the warm summer-months, but so obviously deserted now in winter.

I saw the 'contrast of use' (lacking a better word for it...) in the motive, or perhaps the irony of it sitting there buried in the snow, and wanted to show just that. Besides I have been working hard on trying to show the nature and specially the texture and 'feel' of snow itself.





Does it work?

Any thoughts on it? Normally I would have cropped it tighter on the bottom, but I didn't want to waste all that lovely snow there...

I really like it - the light really is lovely. It does have a lot of "contrast" - both the abandoned feel of winter against a subject associated with summer, as well as the texture of the snow and wood.

It's a pleasure to feel the warmth of sunlight on one's face in your picture as well as the smell of the ice blue snow, which is so real
