The Painted Hills of Oregon's John Day Fossil Beds are some of the most beautiful and striking natural wonders anywhere in the world; these Painted Hills photos do full justice to the wondrous and jaw-dropping nature of the hills.

The photographs were captured by Seattle, Washington-based photographer Paul Edmondson. A former Forest Service archaeologist, Edmonson's photographs contain a natural sense of wonder and discovery.

These Painted Hills photos show the intricately colored volcanic ash that makes these hills so unique. Depending on the weather, light and time of day, the hills can appear as any number of shades of red or yellow. Edmondson's photographic gaze however makes the landscape mysterious and almost too eerie to be true. Stats for Painted Hill Photography Trending: Older & Warm
