Tamarack Glory

For those who are not familiar with Tamarack Larch, this shot shows them starting to turn color. They are not quite at their prime yet, they are behind schedule compared to last year. This is the view as I turn onto the road that takes me to my office in the the morning.

Source Wikipedia:  Tamarack Larch, or Tamarack, is a species of larch native to northern North America and Canada, from eastern Yukon and Inuvik, Northwest Territories east to Newfoundland, and also south into the northeastern United States from Minnesota to Cranesville Swamp, West Virginia; there is also a disjunct population in central Alaska. The name Tamarack is the Algonquian Native American name for the species. The leaves are needle-like, 2-3 cm long, light blue-green, turning bright yellow before they fall in the autumn, leaving the pale pinkish-brown shoots bare until the next spring.
