In his case i must admit I can not make much of it. Its exactly what it is.
Could be abstract painting ala Franz Kline only with a little more detail.
Agree about the abstract nature of this image. At first glance, the scale of the image is not totally obvious. It slowly settles into reality. Nice B&W.
White is not anymore the principal attribute of snow...
Thanks guys, abstraction was the goal here. Textures and lines, not much else :-)
