When these hills are covered with snow, the colors are gone but the shapes are enhanced...much like black and white images. I've added a pano, taken long ago with Kath and Rob, to show the colors. Both images were taken from close to the same place, although I could not identify the spot from the map view
I know the shape but I still would not haven found out immediately that this was the Painted Hills under the snow cover. You would also think that it never snows in this part of the world but I also had my "lessons learned" when we had snowfall in the Colorado National Monument.
Such a pleasure to see this famous place in white. I am sure that not many have such images "white edition" they can show from the Painted Hills. Befoe I read your note, it was the space that fascinated me. We have always a mountain in front of our nose but here it's the space. It makes it somehow even colder looking.

two amazing entries Pat. It is hard to imagine that we are looking at the same hills in the panorama. I really like the main though for its almost b/w image, the lead-in path is excellently placed in one corner and the sun just giving a touch of blue tot he sky in the other. Into my choices!
Oh my, Patricia!! This looks cold - but beautiful. The contrast to the large version couldn't be bigger. Even the colours there transmit warmth. A most interesting and impressive contribution. Nature is an ingenious painter - in each season.
Thank you for showing this!
Greetings from Germany!
