Tamarack Glory

The Western Larch trees are in full autumn glory in Northwest Montana. Larch, also known as tamaracks, are one of the most remarkable trees of the pine family. After the leaves of aspen and other deciduous species fade and die in autumn, the larch turn gold—one of the few conifers to do so. In Montana, tamaracks grow in the mountains and valleys of the state’s northwestern corner, from the western boundary to the Continental Divide in Glacier National Park and then roughly south into the Bitterroot Range.
Such beautiful colours and perspective.

We have those in Sweden too. Have you noticed in the spring when the tiny cones appear in pink?

I love the larch trees and hiked up to Swiftcurrent Lake yesterday to see their autumn glow. We are so fortunate to live where we do. Beautiful image and POV.

Another beautiful shot. Besides for your colorful conifer trees, I envy you your picturesque cloudy sky. Very stately shot.

Lovely shot - I don't think I was familiar with the larch trees or that their change happened so late. What a wonderful bonus nature has given you. That blue sky sets it off nicely.
