European Larch tree
Europäische Lärche
Mélèze commun

Family: Pinaceae
Size: Until ca 40m
Distribution: Northern hemispere

Although a conifer, the larch is a deciduous tree and loses its leaves in the autumn. On the picture we can see well that the needles turned already golden.
There are ca 15 species, these trees are most probably Larix decidua, the European Larch.

Taken at altitude 2000m, I was attracted especially by the special shape of the tree in the front.

Hello Anne,
Wonderful reflection of the autumn spirit.Selected subject in amazing.I am impressed with combination of light and dark colours tones,perfect exposure and excellent details of the whole scene.
Have a nice weekend

The bright sunshine lends a special glow to these tall Larch trees, Anne.
The wooded mountain on the other side of the valley is strongly reminiscent of my homeland in the Himalayas.
It is beautiful and pleasant nature image of autumn.

Hallo Anne,
schönes Bild dieser goldenen Lärchen mit guter Schärfe und einem netten Spiel von Licht und Schatten am unteren Bildrand. Die Farben sind wunderschön und ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass sie zusammen mit dem Neuschnee der letzten Tage noch besser zur Wirkung kommen, vorausgesetzt sie sind noch nicht komplett zugeschneit. ;-)
Viele Grüße,

Hello Anne,
Beautiful photo of this landscape in splendid light and beautiful natural colours. Great sharpness and a fine choice of composition.

Hello Anne,
Now this is the scene that makes one want to sit down and enjoy the beautiful trees and setting you have discovered. The Lighting is spectacular. I hear you have snow already in Berne, if it is luck I am happy for you, if it is bad luck, your fox may not be back yet.
Have A Great Week...

Hello Anne,
I must admit I have never heard of this particular tree before, but it is truly a beautiful specimen. You have captured it's image wonderfully standing before this gorgeous mountainous BG. Stunning colors and perfectly exposed. Great work!!

Hello Anne,

From the thumbnail I assumed the background was the sky hehehe!
You have recorded a fine seasonal scenery, with vegetation in autumn dress and frost in the grass...
Beautiful light that really enhances the good impression, well framed and nicely presented!
