This expansive plain lies on the western edge of Hudson Bay. A major temperature decline in the last 24 hours is causing a rapid formation of coastal shelf ice pack. This landscape is dotted with dwarfed Black Spruce trees that are stunted by the thin soil mantle caused by the shield geological formation and permafrost layer, as well as the northerly latitude that reduces the growing season. The horizon exhibits gray unfrozen waters, while the area immediately therebelow illustrates the forming ice pack.
