[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At the end of the road at the Painted hills Unit of the John Day fossil Beds is this huge hillside named the Red Hill. A person can walk around the hillside very closely and climb the smaller unexposed hillsides that surround the larger one to capture its likenes and view the textures. I chose to crop this image a bit different due to the cloud in the rear as it was perfectly placed by Mother Nature as it offered balance to the scene.
Have A Great Week...

I know you love this place...but I'll wager today it is well of 100F out there...It is 97 here and I hear warmer south....wow...so in a round about way...the colours work for today. had you posted this in winter it might be a different ballgame. People see with seasonal eyes..and I philosophize way too much:-0

Hi Steven,
I really like your composition, and the rich warm colors are a treat.
What a beautiful place that must be.
So many textures as well.
I also enjoy the convergence of the curved lines coming from all different directions, and the juxtaposition of the yellows and oranges and browns.
TFS. : )

Hello Steven,
Having noticed that one of your pictures I liked, has been deleted, I come back to another one, where there is -I hope- no possibility to delete. The Oregon Painted Hills must be one of the great natural landscapes of the States. I would thank you to have contributed to make them better known on this site. And of course I hope that I will see this area once in my life!
Thanks also for your green star for my last picture.I'm pleased that you like it.
Kind regards and a nice week
