Photographer's Note

This pathway is such an invitation for a walk and though it looks unatural in this surreal but nature setting but it protects this very fragil soil of wonder.

I did some saturation but not that much, this hills are really in this very rich color, you can see some other shots from other TE member to compare, you'll find that my is less saturated due to the low light and it all in the shadow at the time.

There are many images of Painted Hills here on TE, there was a TE meeting for a photo shoot a year or so ago here. Well, now it's hard to find a POV that is different. I hope this composition is different enough for all to enjoy once again. I have a few shots that I thought turn out very nice that I will post later. It’s a long way to get there, and it’s a fairly small area, but wonderful photo opportunities every corner you turn. Thanks for looking in.

Painted Hills is one of the three units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, located in Wheeler County, Oregon It totals 3,132 acres (12.7 km²) and is located 9 miles (14 km) northwest of Mitchell, Oregon and 75 miles east of Bend.
