Painted Hills 4: Painted Ridge Evening

Painted Hills SP16-244

From the gravel road (see the map in this post) that takes you into the Painted Hills, there’s a spot, off to one side, that provides an excellent viewing point for photographing the Painted Ridge during the evening hours, when the sun bathes these colorful and picturesque mounds in soft, warm, soothing light. Here’s a satellite image of the area, along with tags indicating the spot from which I photographed the ridge:
