Notes

Best time to shoot these hills is early morning and late evening to bring out the best in the colors of these hills. Look for abstract close-ups of these hills, as well as grand vistas.

Description

During spring, you can catch the wildflowers that abound in the Painted Hills, part of the John Day National Monument in eastern Oregon. The hills were formed over the past 250 million years by repeated volcanic explosions depositing ash in this area as well as climatic changes that helped create the bands of color.
