Juxtaposition in extremis - cold weather and a warm coat in black and white

Picture of my series: 'Juxtaposition'. The contrast where as well as the snowflakes and the hair details were still visible made the image powerful. These old horses had grown a winter fur that made them comfortable and warm in the cold winter. The fact that their coat is black and the fresh falling snow perfectly white completed the image.
