I visited the Painted Hills last week. This is a beautiful area in central Oregon that is part of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The excuse for my trip was to see the lunar eclipse. Well, the clouds rolled in just in time for the eclipse, so that was a bust. A quick reminder to please check out my campaign to get back on track to making images. Please share and help me get the word out, whether or not you can contribute right now. Here’s the link. Thanks!
Camping in the Painted Hills was very peaceful, lonely even. I just had my little point and shoot camera of course, so there were some opportunities missed (especially low light and night sky images). But I did catch some nice light on the hills. I’ll do a post on the Painted Hills this week & explain why they look like this (it’s been quite awhile since I’ve talked geology here). I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter Sunday!
