In eastern Oregon there is a very unique park for landscape photography. It's called John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The land forms and the unusual colors of the minerals that make up the dirt are amazing. To embellish this alien-like landscape, Jim added an ultra-dramatic sky in Photoshop (this is why you need to learn Photoshop instead of relying on Lightroom for post-processing -- LR is too limited). Jim photographed these very angry clouds from his home the morning TN had a Biblical flood in Nashville, Tennessee in 2010, and then he added the rays of light.
