Snowbanks in the sky

Something about this scene makes me feel like I don’t particularly want to walk down that path. Is it the thick woods or the patches of snow in the sky?

This image was created in several exposures, the last of which was of a frozen lake covered by patches of snow. I think the patches create a barrier effect. The scene feels further away and not especially welcoming.

Or do you see something different?
