I love the way that normally busy Hamsterley becomes a genuine wilderness in the snow. Great shot. By way of a little feedback the grad line between sky and trees is maybe just a bit too strong to be comfortable? I realise it would be tricky to do otherwise though.
I'm not sure I can really describe why but it certainly has a lot more about it than the typical posts-in-the-sea-at-sunset shot. I'm pretty sure it's something about comp rather than light for me but it's too much in my subconscious to articulate I'm afraid
