Actually, I think the swash of black asphalt turns the picture into a breathtaking work of art. Not exaggerating; I gasped when I saw it. Without that strip of road, it's just another snowy scene with power-line poles.
Beautiful photo. I agree with Snap Shot and John Cullen: the plowed road adds to the shot. Love he colors and lines. The photo inspires tranquility. Well done, Klassy!
Serene. I suspect the asphalt wave actually enhances the shot by providing depth and contrast. Plus it reflects some of the sky color. Nice shot.
