Very moody. I do like this. If only there was a hint of a person standing somewhere in the distance. That is if only it wouldn't have ruined the deep depth of scale the shot currently has. (no vote)

Nice shot. Would be stronger if the horizon weren't so near the center.

I'm coming back to comment. I love the barren feel of it. Great wisps of clouds. 7

it seems to stretch on forever - i always find it interesting how different ice can look depending on the angle of the light
