Thanks Jane! I walked out to see if the snow had started yet and caught a little sparkle from a juniper bush and had to try a few photos. I liked this one. A macro shot in the dark using a hiking staff as a monopod.
As soon as I saw it, I thought, “cedar.” Of course, that’s because what most Texans call cedar actually is Ashe juniper, and your buds and leaves are almost identical. I like the clarity of the ice, too. It’s a beautiful photo.
this is so beautiful. i love seeing the details which are very much like a cedar tree. I have used this design to portray braided hair in art because of the cedar. so i looked up juniper and cedar to see if they are related and indeed they are. I did not know 😉
