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.

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.
