I really like this piece. Being a summer man myself, I absolutely hate winter, and I feel like what you've done here is perfectly capture the bleakness I associate with winter: It's MOSTLY black and white, yet contains just enough of a hint of color for the viewer to notice it. In that regard, it's a lot like winter itself: When the leaves fall and the animals retreat to their holes, the world begins to take on an almost deadened appearance, and one must like deeper to really see the life thriving within it.
I like how the trees on either side of the photo form a frame within the frame, directing the viewers focus forward along the road in the center. To me, this conveys a sense of possibility, of openness.
As nice as the photo is to look at, however, I must also point out that there's not much here to show the viewer what exactly you were trying to convey with this picture. Perhaps using an additional set-piece or a more centralized focus could have given more direction to the photo?
