The Colourful Hills in East Central Oregon

1290 The Colourful Hills in East Central Oregon

Layers of breathtaking colour streak the rolling hills of this vast desert, making the landscape appear as though it has been tie-dyed. The natural phenomenon, nicknamed the “Painted Desert”, was formed when the area was once a river floodplain.

Each colour corresponds to a different underground geological feature – rocks which have seemingly dyed the layers of earth above. Formed from volcanic activity, the hills at the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in East Central Oregon, USA, are almost bursting with colour.

Pretty Power Plants

“You wouldn’t normally associate power stations with beautiful scenic shots but one photographer has traveled nearly 2000 to track down the ugliest energy plants and show them in a whole new light. Czech snapper, Radek Kalhous, uses Google Earth to find the perfect locations for his unique pictures and arrives at each site after sunset to create the atmospheric shots.

The 40-year-old uses nothing more than clever lighting and a tilt-shift lens to capture the ugly power stations in a series of dreamy photographs which resemble something from a model toy world. Radek has clocked up almost 2000 miles so far in his quest to create the thought-provoking photos”. – Caters News

1262 Studio Allergutendinge’s Soul Box is a Portable Retreat for ‘Glamping’ in Nature

Allergutendinge created the ‘Spirit Shelter’, exploring the dream of Arcadia. On the one hand the term describes a real swath of land in antique Greece. On the other hand it is an idea for an emotional hideaway, to live in harmony with yourself and nature.

Like the idea of Arcadia, the ‘Spirit Shelter’ consists of two main parts. The research section provides tools to discover the physical world, the wilderness. In the sleeping section there is space for meditation and self-exploration. In order to find one‘s personal Arcadia the ‘Spirit Shelter’ is designed mobile. The woodframe construction can be disassembled and transported to any scenery.
