This photo was taken during an early morning walk-around looking for minimalist shots in the snowy landscape. I was drawn by the fence and the downward slope. The hut was a nice bonus. The sun though spoiled it a bit, because I would have preferred a flatter light from a cloudy day. I focus stacked so that I have the option to select which part of the image would be sharp, but it was my intention from the beginning to keep one end of the image in soft focus.
