Porters Pass

This morning I drove up to Porters Pass in the mountains. After a long mild spell there is not much snow up there for this time of winter. My interest was the alpine plants that grow at the roadside. However, it pays to look up occasionally, which is how I captured this halo.

The sun makes a halo as it peeps over a mountainside at Porters Pass

There is an amazing variety of tiny plants, mosses and lichens covering the ground. The plants are very colourful and they are beautiful among the mosses and lichens. I don't know the names of any of them.
