Through the Larch and Pine, Upper Derwent Valley, Derbyshire
There is a time in the woodlands, that I think rivals the golden drop of autumnal leaves. Different in colour and feel, but just as magical in its own way. Tall Pine with their straight trunks casting equally tall (long) shadows in the low sun, walking below the Larch, whos needles dry, change colour and drop…. they crunch and form a soft carpet as you walk below the now bare tree tops. Then of course you have to add that distinctive Pine wood aroma….. Magic Memories are made on such days 🙂
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Mmm, I am thinking of the aroma and the feel of our late-autumn Minnesota woods too, with great fondness. I like your framing of this one very much.
Thank you….. we have a saying here (no doubt you have a similar one) that when things are so confused we say ” You cannot see the wood for the trees ” . In this case I think we can see both 🙂 As for the woodland aroma’s, well at this time of our year the scent box is bursting with different scintillating smells, even as they often mark decay.
