Flaming Cliffs

These are the flaming cliffs on the Gobi Desert in southern Mongolia. Near them is what was the richest dinosaur bone bed in the world, until a much richer bone bed was discovered on Pipestone Creek near Grande Prairie in Alberta, Canada. The rich colour of the stone is enhanced by the light of the setting sun.
