petrelpiotr, Viktor Herman,
Hello and thank for the compliment!
This place is so Special..
The Road coming into this place is close to the green pasture at the foot of the mountains on the left side of the image in the background.
Because the Hills are a granulated clay they reflect light in a very strange way and the color of the hills are this dark black charcol. as you come up around the hill the colors begin to come out.
Now at different times of the year you can come up here and you see colors right away.
Its a very beautiful place..
WOW, Michael...such beautiful layers of warm, rich colors. How very wonderful to have the opportunity to see this stunning scenery up close. A most impressive image. Thanks so much for sharing this special place with us.
Kind regards, Julie

Hello and thanks for the vote.
These Hills are made up of granuals of clay. They are ancient deposits of Ash from the Straberry Mountain Volcano 50(ish) miles to the east when it erupted 1000's of years ago. This area does not get alot of rain so the erosion proccess has been slower here. In the past this area used to be home to Rhinos, Sabertooth tiger and paleontologists have found a clmplete evolutionary record of the Horse here.
it's an interesting place..
Thanks a lot for the vote. I'm glad it caught your eye. The color here changes dramatically with the weather. and the clay that makes up the hills refelects light by scattering it. It's Truly an interesting place.
Fantastic colors and contrast. Voted. Greeting Frank
