Name That Tree

I stopped by Old Quarry Trail again this afternoon. In the last hour of daylight, I was looking for a subject for my 365 Project. I came across this tree, which was silhouetted against the fading light from the sun.

While I tried to figure out the best way to interpret its chaotic spray of branches with my camera, it occurred to me that I had no idea what this was. It had many pine cones but no needles, just little buds. The branches hung like a Weeping Willow.

I looked it up when I got home; it’s a European Larch, which is a type of Pine.

A lovely subject.
