This is a 'cool' shot!!!

The lighting is nice, it almost has a film studio look to it. I would love to get somewhere with snow like this.

Thanks, the result was totally unexpected. The photo turned out better than I thought it would.

Very nice picture. Reminds me of... this place. Looks like you've got just as much snow as we have. The only nice thing that I have to say about winters in the northern latitudes is that we get fantastic lighting that gets intensified by the white snow. This you have caught nicely in this picture.

This is a very interesting and good shot of a winter-landscape. So good in fact that I kept staring at it for some time, trying to figure out what intrigued me so much with it. There was something there that I could not define.

Was it the almost 3-dimensional trees on the left side of the dirt-road? Was it the mood, the light, the woods or what?

It tok me sometime to find out what was so peculiar to me. It first came to me when I read Alasdair's post where he, among other things, said: "...about winters in the northern latitudes is that we get fantastic lighting that gets intensified by the white snow..." - Then it hit me.

Of course! Most of my mental and real pictures of winter and snow, come from Norway. We live so far north that our winter-sun is always very low on the horizon, giving nature a special kind of light, with sun-rays almost horizontal - while on your picture here, the sun shines almost straight down onto the snow on the ground!

This is somehow an unknown situation for me, and that is what made me look twice and wonder.

Good shot, rlewis0083!

Thanks for all the comments. My wife said it would be better without her in it!

I just wish I lived there. I live in Alabama in the US. We were vacationing in Montana when I took this shot. My mom and dad had rented a house in the "big" town of Sula, Montana which is about 20 miles or so from where this shot was taken.
