Polish Larch

These cones are found on the Polish Larch. It is a deciduous coniferous tree–drops leaves in winter, but has cones like the more commonly known evergreens. It is a very cold tolerant tree, often seen on the borders of the Alps. The larch hangs onto its cones for many years, and they will eventually turn an old gray color before finally dropping from the tree.

    Polish Larch may not have been the Larch I’m acquainted with, but there is a type that grows in the NW. It looks like any other evergreen tree, but in the fall, the entire tree turns into a golden torch before dropping its needles. Unfortunately, I’ve never had the opportunity to become up close and personal with this tree. Now I regret that I never took that step.

    This is a nicely composed shot. Great color and detail. Yes, the bokeh too. 😀

    Interesting shot. The bokeh starts with a bit of a blury branach and progresses to a very nice background.
