    Very nice. Great composition. It would be great to revisit this scene once the trees are filled with leaves.

    It's a nice photo, Donald. The area is quite similar to the mountains around Madrid, where I often go to take photos.

    I think you made a good choice of shutter speed: the water gives the impression of flowing smoothly, without being overdone.

    I like it a lot Donald, it works for me for several reasons;
    Great depth of field and sharpness means I can look everywhere, right from front to back - and things are sharp - it is just like I am there.
    Great perspective/composition, the angle of view, height of camera and angle of tilt - all just right.
    The frost on the ground on the right and the distant log just lift those elements in a perfect way, it allows you to see the "lie of the land" on the right which would otherwise just be a confusion of green, yellow and brown.
    There's even a bit of clear (not milky) water on the right middle area to offset some of the featureless bits of water.

    ... and of course good exposure and natural processing.

    Well seen and exceptionally well photographed.

    I had a look at the EXIF data; Nikon D7000 at 30mm (so 45mm FFE), 3 seconds at f/20 and iso 100.
