Photographer's Note

These colourful hills are situated in Danxia Geopark, west of Zhangye city in Gansu province. The different colours of the hills apparently are due to different minerals reacting with iron in the soil layers.
The complete area is covered with these kind of hills. The most spectacular formations are part of the tourist trail inside the Geopark.
