This is the road I live on- (or rather off of- our driveway is 400 feet straight up from the snowbank in the foreground). . I have been feeling a bit under the weather, so this kind of says it all! :D 
I used some app that is part of Topaz Studio, but I can't remember which one. (A bit fuzzy-headed, maybe).

I see a lot of life and action in this image, Cindy. Specifically, it appears that blustery winds are significantly blowing the tree limbs on both sides of the road. It is a stormy scene in the very lovely landscape in which you live. And I love the artistic treatment you applied to the road and trees. The leading line of the road also is a terrific compositional element. Sorry you are not feeling up to par, and I hope you feel better soon, but I love your sharing with us a glimpse of the lovely, snowy countryside where you live. Beautiful. :D

It almost feels as if those trees are sentient beings about to reach out and grab you in an alternate universe where trees are out to snatch up mammalian life - whoa! No I have not been smoking anything... :o

Lol! Yes, they kinda express how I was feeling at the time. Actually, I have not (yet) been attacked by the trees-they are very friendly. The road, however, can eat you up. 10 foot ditches  with no way to get by during several hurricanes, 4-5 feet of snow recently,and major ooze in mud season. Love it here. :)

I knew you lived in a beautiful place but I didn't know it was the enchanted forest!  :P 

The effects here are quite magical, Cindy, and the animated trees are wonderful.  I really love this creative, fantasy scene.

Brilliant work!

The effect is perfect for this image -- I think. The blistery cold really shows thru. To me - it is somewhat ominous but at the same time very beautiful. So maybe the ominous look reflects how you feel. ;)

Sorry you are under the weather. I love the feathery effect it really lends to a blowy, snowy day. Very nicely done.
Observing and recording nature should always be done with awe and the knowledge that it is a privilege to just be there!
