European Larch
Europäische Lärche
Mélèze européen

Distribution: Mountains of Central Europe, Alps, Carpathians. Poland, Lithuania

This tree changes colors in autumn to turn yellow and orange before loosing its needles in wintertime. On higher altitude it's not seldom to find this small, kind of bonsai-version which you can see on the picture.

It is very cold tolerant, able to survive winter temperatures down to at least -50°C, and is among the tree line trees in the Alps, reaching 2400 m altitude, though most abundant from 1000–2000 m. It only grows on well-drained soils.

Just one illustration more to show autumnal changes in nature.

The autumn colours typical of vegetation in the mountains remind me of my native place, Anne. These young larches have turned golden in your area and you have captured their colour tones very effectively here.
TFS and regards.
