Painted Hills    John Day Fossil Beds, Oregon, USA

The landscape overlooking The Painted Hills is surrealistic. Depending on the direction of light and season, the colour of the hills can have a very different appearance. This image was taken on a cloudy day that virtually eliminated any contrast or shadow. The subdued light also brought out the unusual dark patterns that the hills get their name from.
