A rather incredible image, an image with plenty to see and wonder and one which has so much to tell "Superb"

One can feel the cold and loneliness in this very well documented setting.

You've nailed another really atmospheric shot, Francis. The title informs the viewer and helps to give context. I really like it. Smile

My first thought was Russia, then saw you and realised it couldn't possibly be, this really does tell a story.

It looks dismal, that is for sure. How is this now impacting nature. I was just watching a documentary on wolves in Canada - it was probably a few years since it was made, but the commentator mentioned the oil sands and what possible impact it might have for wildlife in the area.

You've captured the mood of the place to perfection!
I also like the light reflected on the snow.

Cold and lonely yes, but my first thought was what it said about the impact on the environment.
Strong image either way.
