I think the larch is one of the most photogenic of trees. It presents some very nice (and varied, depending on viewpoint) textures. A member of the pine family, the larch is actually deciduous and loses it’s leaves (needles) over the winter. The fine and lace-like appearance belies the fact the larch is one of the sturdiest woods for building.
Note the wide open aperture used in this shot. There was plenty of good light to work with (see the very fast shutter), so a much smaller lens would have been possible. A smaller aperture would have brought more of the larch branches into sharper focus. I think that would have had a different look. I like the background out of focus and the very excellent bokeh.
