Earthscape # Painted Hills
another instance of nature’s playground or more precisely – nature’s painting palette in the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Central Oregon.
The shapes, contours and colors of these Hills make for many interesting compositions. Also a different time of the day or month or year would each impart unique colors. Generally speaking, the colors are super saturated during the later half of the day and a bit muted during the early part of the day. I tried capturing it in different lighting conditions throughout the day and while I still go through my cache, for now, I liked this version (a bit muted as you will see once you compare with the evening version).
