Sunrise on the John Day Fossil Beds. I was there 10 years ago and shot this:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/73601/120/464559.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/73601/120/464559.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Have talked with other photographers and the locals here. 1997 was the last year the yellow flowers bloomed. Was sad to go back this year, they have put up a large fence a ways from the hills, I didn't know why until I returned home and looked at the images. They are cloned out, but there are alot of footprints on these pretty hills, probably human.

Other view:

The night before there was a forest fire up in the hills behind where I was standing:

What a great place to get lost in yourself. I've really been wanting to take a gander out that way... How long of a drive from Portland?

Sad about the yellow flowers but Oregon is weird that way. Our fruit trees didn't produce this year :(

Stunning. The colors and textures are outstanding. The photo with the yellow flowers is the bomb. I hope it's not due to pollution that they haven't bloomed in 10 years.

I really, really like your photo. It looks like a very interesting place - like places I've seen in New Mexico, Arizona or Utah. I'm giving it a 10 and hope it will finish in the top 20 in this mega-entry challenge.

Lovely color and texture. It's hard to grasp any context for scaling/size without a foreground anchor. Overall it's an interesting capture. Good luck in the challenge.

OH wow! The texture and the colors here are fantastic. Almost looks like fur and that makes me want to touch it :)Very well done.

I like the shadows in it. I hope you didn't have to wait all day for them.
