Painted Dunes, Lassen Volcanic National Park

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos Painted Dunes can be seen atop Cinder Cone at Lassen Volcanic National Park in California. The colors are a result of volcanic activity. The beauty is breathtaking. The vision, as you can see, is like an oil painting. God's tapestry on Earth. (This photo and caption were submitted to Your Shot.)
