Hello Steven,

It's hard to believe this is a natural formation. The hills resemble colossal mushrooms, with reddish concentric contour lines representing different elevations. The composition, exposure, colors and resolution all collaborate to make this a first rate photo, worthy of the National Geographic (and I should know, being an NGS author).

Warm regards,

Default To batalay: Thank You Bulent

Last year next month there was an entourage of NG photographers that visited the Unit while I was there.
They all took off to the ranch and I stayed for awhile and then went off to Twickenham and then off to Clarno.
I do have a question for you however, how would I place an image or offer an image into the rear section of the NG as a private individual? I have several images that are noteworthy and share the feel of the Painted Hills Unit as well as the remaining two Units, the Clarno and the Sheep Rock.
Any info would be greatly appreciated, and if you are ever in the area let me know and I can offer some advice to where and when in Oregon and Washington.
Thanks Again,

Default National Geographic

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question. I would have to do some detective work or a google search just as you would. I have always been a professor of physics, writing books on the side. National Geographic Books, the publisher of my last book, and my next are wonderful to work with, but there appears to be little collaboration between the magazine, the digital media, the book department, the tv... If I find out, I will let you know. Meanwhile, I suggest some sleuthing. With my book, "Leonardo's Universe," there was a young photo editor with whom I was at constant loggerheads. We frequently argued about what would go in, and almost always she would win out. Out of 200 images, I think 3-4 are photos that I took.

Warm regards,
