The Juniper trees are a photographer's dream with their incredible textures. How on earth they grow in such seemingly hostile landscapes is beyond me.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are so amazing, aren't they!

excellent main picture - would never have guessed what it is. Likey.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so very much, Louis!
I have many shots similar that I rarely show here. Trees are amazing in every detail.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I love the detail on trees- you should show more!
I just love seeing little trees growing from such places.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I do too, Brian!! Something special about their "can do" spirit! The will to live!
