The clusters of needles look like little brown brushes.
Yes that’s true, I suppose they could serve to sweep 🧹 in a pinch.
That sort of thing happened in Texas in the 1800s. Settlers would pull out a certain easily uprooted native plant, turn it upside down, and use it to sweep with. Not surprisingly, they called the plant broomweed. The name survives long after that usage disappeared.
That’s beautiful color, a beautifully formed branch, and a beautifully composed image. But inquiring minds want to know: Are you pining for spring, or opining on the lingering winter?
Thank you, Linda, 🌲🌱🌷🌹🌝 I think I am definitely ready for spring to arrive!
Your photo cheers me up as a reminder that spring is just around the corner.
Thanks, Peter. It really feels like spring will be here early this year, yay.
Thanks so much!
The pine bough could be taking a bow with that rich color atop the winter freeze.
I like that idea, thanks Steve 😊
Really lovely, Robert. I like it. 🙂
Thank you, Lynn, I appreciate it. It’s awfully dark but just really appeals to me that way.
Me too – dark can be good!
Nice textures. (Although I had to click through to see a sharp copy.) I don’t think I’ve had the camera out all winter, so in terms of cool shots I’ll have to bough out of contention.
Thanks, Dave. I go back and fiddle with the size, sometimes that seems to resolve the fuzziness. Several times recently when I’m in edit mode, WP will not let me change the size! I have to erase the image and start over, maybe it’s the format I’ve used all these years but I like it otherwise and also I’m too lazy to change it.
