|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|On a Trek meet I took this image of the very first hillside as you would enter into the valley on foot from the roadway. What captured my eye first were the ridgelines crossing in different directions than the red iron mineral lines of the ash deposits that were implaced by early Miocene Volcanoes of the Clarno Volcanic formations. The Painted Hills Unit as well as the two remaining Units, the Clarno, and the Sheep Rock, of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is a treasure to the world in that they all in combination have furnished paleonotologists and those versed in the earliest of plant life and soils the most significant location in the world to further their discoveries. |
If anyone is interested in joining a Trek Meet the latter part of the first week in June, the 5th through the 7th and 8th you may contact me and I will give you the location where we will be meeting or in the case you need transportation from either Fresno, California or from the Portland, Oregon area.

What a wonderful scenery to look at, and how wonderful is technology that I am able to look at it miles and miles away, but see it so close to my eyes. This is a beautiful combination of different colours and patterns. Looking from above, downwards, I see a layer upon layer. Firstly the layer of the bright blue sky, and then the layers of wonderful colours of this volcanic formation. I am sure if one could have zoomed in on this photo, one would have been able to see many wonderful and interesting textures on these formations. Thanks for sharing this most beautifully shaped piece of nature.

Un paysage qui est devenu familier maintenant, grâce à tes images. Une belle région à investiguer!
Ton image est belle, les couleurs sont naturelles. Mais j'ai un grand problème avec ton cadre.. Cela ressemble un peu à une annonce mortuaire. Cette image, en fait, n'a pas besoin d'être encadrée, elle se suffit à elle-même.
