The Painted Hills At Dawn
Photo By Stuart Gordon

  • Title: The Painted Hills At Dawn
  • State/Province/Region: Oregon
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: John day Fossil Beds national Monument
  • Nearest Town: Mitchell
  • Brief Directions: From Prineville head east toward the Idaho border and the town of Mitchell in Eastern Oregon. The painted Hills is part of the John day Fossil Bend National Monument.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Wildflowers arrive in May, especially Golden Bees, painting the already colorful Painted Hills with bright yellow swatches. The Painted Hills were formed as a result of the buildup of ash from volcanic explosions in Eastern and Central Oregon over eons. The different colors banded in the smoothly molded hills represent different climatic changes over many millenia.

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
