Stunning. The atmosphere and depth really give such strong feeling to the picture. Good lighting- no values are too dominant. Yep, pretty much awesome! :)

Thank you greatly! I wish winter wasn't over here in the mountains of NC. Now to Storm Chasing! :-)

Purple catches the view perfectly, it is right - a very beautiful winter, indeed.

This is beautiful and eerie all at the same time; the lighting is just right in my eye and you framed the shot really well.

Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.
Kind of funny, when I was out hiking around, taking this shot, I was hiding behind another tree trying to get some shelter from the wind and snow! Freezing cold. These photos turned out much better than I thought they would.

Thanks again. :-)

beautiful! everything blends together so nicely. its got an... almost fantasy kind of look to it, like im waiting for some kind of mythical creature, such as a unicorn or something of that nature, to materialize and just awe me. i also like how the edges of the picture turn black, gives it more depth somehow and really rivets you attention to the central area. :clap: nicely done!

Thank you so much.
This was one intense winter storm. It only dropped about 6 inches of snow but the winds were intense. Where I took this photo was a small mountain top, roughly 3,400 feet. The winds were roughly 70 mph. The tallest mountain in our area recorded the highest wind speeds ever! 116mph!

Thanks again! I really appreciate the feedback.

No probs, battling 70mph winds to get a shot like this is well worth it :D
