It's one of those "wish I'd shot that" photos, Nick. The driftwood atop the ice )?) really brings the shot to life.

Thanks everyone for stopping to view and your kind words...and thanks to Betterphoto for choosing this image.. to answer Alex this was taken after a 2 hour chase of a storm ..it is a dam about an hour from Brisbane called Moogerah..the tree was about 200 feet into the lake so I walked in backwards with the tripod close to the bottom just in case there was a sudden deepening
