I love the snow, the whiteness and the silence too... this is one of the most beautiful winter photograph I have seen! The fact that the branches join and form sort of an arch adds a lot of charm to this scenery. The silhouette in the background adds mystery...I assume that is a man, alone in the snow...we don't know if he's happy or unhappy, enjoying his walk or rather lost and miserable in the cold.
Woa that is amazing!! I know what you mean about the whiteness and the silence. It is the silence that brings peace. Doesnt it just put you in it's magical transe? I just wish that you could spend longer in it... if you didn't freeze
