Coniferous Forests

Challenge #4 in the Art of Earth series. Hosted by luxborealis.
Challenge has finished
For those of you who have forgotten your botany - coniferous trees are the ones with needle-leaves. That being said, I am challenging you to show us your best images of coniferous forests - no mixed forests. Images must include a collection of coniferous trees, however, there is more to a forest than the trees, so show us what's there. While typically only natural elements are permitted in the Art of Earth series, you may include plantations of coniferous trees - but again - no further human influences are allowed - photos must be of nature only, without people, fences, tents, cabins, pets, roads, lights, etc..
