Golden Tamarack

Tamarack/Larch
There's a tamarack swamp on a stretch of road that we drive to visit my family. Every fall, it's a stunning wash of yellow.

I always want to capture that beauty, but photos taken from a car going 65 are never any good.

So this year I asked Reuben to pull over so I could snap a few photos. I hurriedly pressed the shutter as cars whizzed past. And we were on our way.

It was worth the fear of getting into trouble.

I kinda wish it would have been a sunny evening instead of a cloudy afternoon, but I quite enjoy the moody feel.

  1. Beautiful photo Erica Lea! I've never heard of Tamarack; as we probably don't have it in southern California!

    1. Thank you, Laurie! I think it's also known as larch, but Dad always called it a Tamarack swamp. :)
