The Bald Cypress growing to up to 40m is usually found in swamps and is deciduous, although her leaves look like tiny needles. She loses them in November, and trees and forest floor are covered in rusty red.

Wow, they really like swamps!
I didn't know. A very scenic pond - with the reflections and rusty needls. Great.
Bw, Viola

…and after it's lost all its tiny "needles", it's bald! is that why they named the tree a "bald cypress"? or is it because its roots protruding from the water look like miniature aliens with little bald heads? whichever it is, my heart goes out to the rudely named plant! ; ))) a great shot and an eye-opener for me, as i have never seen this kind of tree before! and the "rusty swamp" is beautiful! hugs, sabine.

Good capture and presentation of those striking trees that likes to grow in swampy areas.
One can see very clearly the aerial roots (pneumatophores) this tree has.

This part of the cypress you have very well captured. Great colors and reflections
Greetings from Germany

Das Wasser wird durch die gefallenen Nadeln einen ganz speziellen Ph-Wert bekommen - aber sie fühlen sich dort ja offensichtlich richtig wohl--
Das rotbraun der Nadeln kommt durch das Wasser ganz besonders schön zur Geltung!

Hab ein schönes WE!

like others never seen this before and what a fine shot with so much detail and clarity

Alfred Schultz, 3.12.2011 at 18:05h

If I were a tree, I would like
to keep my feet rather less wet.
But for a picture, taken by ADO,
I would jump into a pond and
say "cheese".
