[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I thought I'd throw in a bit of a change of scenery here on my Tombstone Range photo journal, and focus a bit on the ground cover.
The plants may not be all that big, but what is lacking in size certainly makes up for in abundance and variety.
The whitish cauliflower-looking plants here is called Caribbo Lichen, and this stuff was everywhere.
The vibrant green plant with the red berries are ground cranberries, which are edible, and the red leafed plants are alpine blueberry plants. You can imagine the contrasts of colour that such a variety of ground cover gives over a large area. Looking back I wish I had spent more time taking shots of this lovely ground cover, but I did manage to get a few from my all weather camera.
Another thing about the ground cover with all the lichen and moss, is that walking around up there is kind of like walking on a giant sponge, especially after a good rainfall which was the case when this shot was taken.

Holy cow batman!!
What an amazing shot.....I just love fall and all it's glorious colours. The textures, colours and detail are all great Tim.

I'm hoping to get out this weekend if it stays clear....cause it snowed last week in the mountains ;(

Hi Tim,
Seems we have the same kind of vegetation.
Great capture with fantastic colours.

What a beautiful tableau, Tim.
I love the smorgasborg of colors and textures in a lovely composition.
Sharp details and good exposure.
TFS. : )
