Simply stunning Matthew!! Love the light and soft cool colors with a warm glow.

Matthew, if a measure of a painting's success is that the viewer feels part of the scene, then you've succeeded magnificently.

Thanks Peter,
I'm glad I made you feel part of that scene, Though it was bloody cold!! Mind you, as an Australian, freezing weather must be a novelty.
All the best, Matt
