This is not a picture I would expect to really like even a little bit. First glance just grabbed me. Lots of subtle things working very well.Just a hint of some gold in the sky reflected off the truck may be the 1st thing. The blue color of the cab plays well with the snow. The leading line of the snow covered road navigates the eye through the trees. There is a sense that the truck is moving (except the door is open:) ) The lights being on adds a tiny splash of color. Great job!

Incredible detail, colour, lighting and clarity of focus ... A skillfully well crafted image/scene. Congrats on your well deserved awards.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Watson Lake in the Yukon, Canada next to the Alaska Highway. Watson Lake has a small community and is about 4 hours drive South of Whitehorse in the Yukon.
Time
This photo was taken in the afternoon on a cold winter's day, with snow covered trees and snow on the road.
Lighting
It was a bright afternoon with amazing natural light, the blue semi truck was in stark contrast against the white snow covered trees and road.
Equipment
I used a Canon EOS Rebel T5 with natural light and hand held.
Inspiration
I was inspired by the winter scene, snow covered trees and road. The Northern roads are inaccessible to most and there is so much incredible beauty and my aim is to convey this beauty to the viewers.
Editing
I added little light to the scene and a bit of color to a dull sky.
In my camera bag
When this photo was taken I only carried my Canon Eos Rebel T5 and my wide angle lens 24 mm with me, since this photo was taken I upgraded to a Canon 5D mark ii and now using a Canon 5D Mark iv, which I received as a birthday gift from my son. I also upgraded to a 17-40mm L Lens.
Feedback
The contrast of the blue truck worked well with the winter scene. I used the road as a leading line. The natural light also created a perfect mood with the snow covered trees and road. In all it created a beautiful picture in a hostile environment.
