Painted Hills Sunset Colors

As part of our Central Oregon trip this past weekend, took a jaunt out to the Painted Hills. First time there. I planned on getting there for sunset and it was spectacular. I didn't know, however, that the majority of the hills are below good light level and so they weren't lit very well during the sunset. Best time to get the hills is likely during the morning or mid afternoon. This is sunset light with exposure pulled up 1.5 steps in post. The next time I go, I'd probably go during the afternoon to get a well lit area and still be able to wait around for sunset. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get to the cove before it went pitch black. Next time!
