Here is a shot taken a few years back of an interesting location in the Central Oregon High Dessert. I guess this might classify as a texture rather than a pattern but everyone is having so much fun with this challenge, I want to keep the ball rolling.

I will post another view of this location later after people have played with it a bit.

well I've never been to the desert before but I'm assuming it's a dried up crusty bed. Don't know what it's called other than dried up desert.

Whatever it is, it's pretty!

Once again I have made my "challenge" too easy. This is photographed at the John Day Fossil Beds -- Painted Hills Unit in central Oregon. There are three different areas that make up the John Day Fossil Beds. The Painted Hills Unit gets its name from the colored strata on the surrounding hills. It is a lot like Southern Utah. I have attached another picture below.

During the cool rainy part of the year, the area shown in the first photo is perfectly smooth. However, in the summer when the rains stop, it shrivels up into the pattern shown.

Gee Cal, you didn't make the challenge too easy, I'm just to brilliant!!:blah:

I love the colours in the rock in your last post. Very unusual!

Cal,

Very nifty shot. As stated - the colors really provide a dramatic impact.
