Red Camelia In A Winter Coat

A red winter camelia was photographed in the snow. In the digital darkroom, I painted the colors of spring, layering shades of it's own warm red into the background. A glowing picture of the beauty found in winter, and the promise of more color to come in the spring.
Camellia sasanqua (the Christmas or Yuletide camellia) is a species of Camellia native to China and Japan. It is usually found growing in high altitudes.
Camelias have a long history of cultivation in Japan for practical rather than decorative reasons. The leaves are used to make tea while the seeds or nuts are used to make tea seed oil, which is used for lighting, lubrication, cooking and cosmetic purposes. Tea oil has a higher calorific content than any other edible oil available naturally in Japan.
I hope you will consider acquiring one of my photographs for your personal enjoyment or as a gift.
