ALPINE ASH

ALPINE ASH, EUCALYPTUS DELEGATENSIS

This part of the Alps has weathered several hot fires in recent years, leaving large areas of skeletal alpine ash, which are usually killed by fire and regenerate from seed. As I climbed the hill I saw this beautiful blue and silver contrast in the morning light.
