European Larch trees Larix decidua in Matterdale Cumbria. This species introduced in the early 17th Century for timber, is coniferous, but loses its needles in winter. The seeds of the larch are useful food for red squirrels, siskin and lesser redpoll whilst many species of caterpillars and moths feed on the foliage.

"Snowfall in the Lake District at the end of April is uncommon. It was on one of these days where the early Spring growth of the larch was unexpectedly covered by a blanket of white. During the midst of the snowfall - the falling snow quickly accumulated around the bases of the trunks and delicately clung to the fine branches.  It lasted a few brief hours and by late morning the larch was once again free of its cloak and looking forward to warmer days of the summer months." – Ross Brown

About Ross Brown

Ross Brown lives in Yorkshire. His passion for photography grew out of a love of exploring the hills, moors and dales of the Lake District, Yorkshire and Scotland. Initially he spent a number of years using a large format camera learning the importance of a meticulous workflow and balanced composition.

Ross has been a regular contributor to the John Muir Trust Wild Nature Diary and Calendar, and exhibits his work in Yorkshire.

We are fortunate to enjoy an ever-changing seasonal landscape in the UK and this makes for a fascinating place to explore and photograph. Hardly has one season established itself when another is soon upon us. I have spent many hours climbing and walking in Northern Britian and through photography have discovered many unique and beautiful places. From the isolated wilderness of the mountains and coast of Northern Scotland to the rugged moorland on my doorstep in Yorkshire – I love being outdoors, watching the light, and trying to capture the texture and details of our precious environment.

In my work as a whole, there are 3 key elements: the colour and tones of autumnal flora, the flow and passage of water, and the detailed patterns in mountain and coastal geology. I hope the images represent the sense of calmness and wonder which I experience and will provide inspiration to explore these remote landscapes.”
