Mosaics are very characteristic patterns of arrangement of two or more elements together. They are rather not common but remarkable in mountains.

 
Mojave Desert Lichen
 
 
Near Soalzecoll Pass ...
 

A very special feature of the mountain environment is its changeability. All its elements like mineral composition of rocks, amount of the organic soil between stones, level of insolation, access to water, and many others can be distinctly differentiated on a very small surface. However, these various environmental components creates some kind of equilibrium and, finally, a picture composed of two or more kinds of spots intermingly scattered. We can observe mosaics like small jewels, as larger patches on slopes or in the form of wide lanscapes with summits, mountain ranges, lakes and clouds. These mosaics resemble interiors of the Romans' bathrooms or modern paintings.

Less can be more, and concentrating an album on the patterns rather than the whole is a great idea! Beautiful imagery!

Hi, Sajama! Mosaics are especially well visible on meadows above tree line and in tundra. Normally we do not see them.
Have a nice day!!!!!!!!
