The colorful bands of the Chinle Formation are seen throughout the Petrified Forest National Park, and were deposited between 227 and 205 million years ago by a northwest flowing river system.One reason I love macro and close-up photography is due to the perspective an image can create. Can you guess the size of this desert scene?I have never been drawn to clouds the way I have been here this month. This winter, sunset drama unfolded right in my front yard! It is called the Painted Desert for a reason☺Hoodoos. What a funny name. Prominent throughout the sandstone regions of the American Southwest, these unique formations are so alive with texture, shape, pattern, color, shadow, contrast, attitude…The painted desert badlands, like pages in an ancient book, show deposits dating over 200 MILLION years!
