The name of your image drew me in immediately, I love abandoned places, and this to me is such a surreal shot. The architecture is superb, and despite the nice light, it has a look of ghostliness to it which is really appealing, especially in the areas of darker shadow. The snow makes this place seem even more forlorn, while the sky is a perfect backdrop, almost reflecting the coldness of the ground.
A beautiful composition of a fascinating subject, thanks for sharing.
All the best
