In the high Olympic Mountains, even the long days of summer sunshine don't make much of a dent in the residual snowfields that collect in the higher cirques. In turn, these snowfields melt off at a constant rate, giving the mosses down lower the water they must have. In places, there are many acres of pure ecotones with moss as the predominant species. Here is a "looking straight down" shot with a Pentax 645. I liked the composition that the moss-rocks combination gave me, so I thought it was worth a shot.
