A technically stunning and atmospheric photo. Rule of thirds has been applied well. The shear lack of colour has added a sense of a true desaturated winter.
While it could be argued that this isn't a particularly original piece by means of where it was taken, I can feel there has been a fair amount of forethought put into this piece.
Expanding on this, the snow and low visibility helps to create a yearning to experience that wonderful vista myself! Your vision has captured this moment in time.
Finally the overall impact can be approached in a variety of different manners - The smell of the ice cold sea breeze, the sound of the birds, the people going about their lives. Whatever is gained from this photograph, it's sure to be unique for each viewer.
