Oregon is famous for the distinctness of its four seasons. Spring,
with its rush of growth and renewal; summer’s brief but merciless sunny
sting; fall’s passive-aggressive decay; and winter’s long and beautiful
clutch. But it wasn’t always so. In fact, 35 million years ago, Oregon
was decidedly tropical – more akin to Hawaii than the fresh pine forests
we know and love.

Near the eastern Oregon town of Mitchell is a prehistoric flood plain
where soil deposited during alternating wet and dry seasons created a
wonder that people come from across the world to see. The Painted Hills
are known for their bands of color that seem to change with the light.
They’re beautiful, to be sure, but less recognized is what the bands
reveal about the unique geology of this place.

This image is composed to show the correlation between the layers and
the dominant slope of the land around them. It tells the story of this
prehistoric flood plain and the cycles of deposit and erosion that
continue even today.
