These dramatic chalk formations are in western Kansas. They reach as high as 80 feet above the surrounding prairie. Much of Kansas was originally part of an inland oecan, and these are layers of the ancient seabed; and are rich with sea fossils. They have been exposed through centuries of erosion. The Monument Rocks are the First National Natural Landmark.

This formation is called (of course!) the keyhole. It can produce dramatic sunrise/sunsets.

The formation on the right has been nicknamed variously "The camel" or "The dog".

Must be an excitingfeeling to shoot among the layers ofsome ancient seabed...Thank you also for your narration which has been a good company for the pictures! I see some very interesting formations in your captures, indeedThey certainly call for shooting at different times of the day, in the early morning or late afternoon, as well!
