Hillside of Fossils
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is very near the town of Fossil Oregon. This community was named by Thomas B. Hoover, who discovered fossil remains on his ranch. Paleontologist Thomas Condon also discovered the remains of a saber-toothed tiger near here. The town was incorporated in 1891, with Mr. Hoover as mayor, and W. W. Steiwer, B. Kelsay, P. Potterton, and C. W. Halsey as councilmen. In 1889, the Fossil Water Company was formed. With the sale of $15,000 worth of bonds, in 1900 the gravity system of water-which is still in operation today-was installed.|

A nice landscape shot here. It is well framed, and I like the colors and composition. I take alot of these type of shots. I usually try and use the smallest apeture possible. This will give you more DOF and sharper detail in your photos.

This is also a part of the John Day Fossil Beds named the Clarno Unit, I knew you knew that but other people may wantor would like to know as well.
Very good image of the rock, lighting and DoF is excellent as well,
