Painted Hills

In the far east of Oregon, the John Day Fossil beds sprawl out across a vast and rugged landscape. We based ourselves at Mitchell as we were most interested in the Painted Hills Unit. With no clouds or colour in the sky to speak of, I ended up taking a series of detailed shots to capture the textures of this crazy terrain! A giant caterpillar fossilsed perhaps?
