2017—Arctic Drop Cloth

We spent some time near Hudson Bay exploring the tundra habitat with its clear, shallow ponds, arctic azaleas, mosses, and the ubiquitous orange lichen.  The lichen covers the glacier-flattened rocks in great blotches of yellows, whites, and blacks, but the brilliant orange seems to be the dominant lichen.  It is quite a spectacular sight.  To me it is a kind of arctic drop cloth covered with splotches of paint.  This shot looks a little like reminds me of  a scrunched up drop cloth, ready to be carried to the next paint job.
