Sharon, congratulations on your award, the photo is well worth it. I find that this simple subject material, made even more simple in the B&W, creates a very riveting image.

What a wonderful feeling this photo evokes! I've been through the Flint Hills years ago and have mentioned them to many others who never heard of them, but they are truly part of the prairies of middle America.
