Cool image, Connie!!! Are these the rocks in Kansas just south of Oakley also known as Monument Rocks? Really neat perspective!

Amazing formation & road in the middle of all that flatness!! Very effective POV (where the heck WERE you to be so much higher?) & also choice of background effects.

Connie This image is fantastic, the perspective is so good, and you did good bluring the BG so you can appreciate the rocks formation as you said.

Very cool and unusual landscape image. Great treatment in terms of enhancing contrast and colors to make the subject stand out. Was this shot from an airplane/helicopter?

Wow best photo I've ever seen of this rock formation Connie. I was born in Scott City, your picture was a bit like going home for me. Thanks for posting it! How in the world did you get the perspective? Airplane? Love your website as well and its mission. Kansas is a beautiful place, we need more people photographing it.
