"This picture is quite magical, capturing the essential elements of a winter morning. The success of the composition lies in its simplicity and clarity. The wall's converging perspective draws us into the depths of the picture space, where we find the tree, whose beautiful canopy is asymmetrical, like the composition itself. The mist creates a haunting atmosphere, whilst the crispness of the froston the wall, such a symbol of the Yorkshire landscape, is a tangible counterpoint. The deep winter snowfields and weeks of subzero temperatures some of us remember from childhood are now only a memory, and as global warming gathers pace, scenes such as this may become rare indeed. In that sense, the photograph is also a poignant reminder of the fading beauty of winter. "
