New black and white landscape photographs of the American prairie

New landscape photographs from the stunning, wide-open prairies and plains

States like Kansas are not often top of the list for landscape photographers, which is a shame. The great national parks of the American west are deservedly popular for their striking and dramatic landscapes, but other than courageous storm photographers, prairie states like Kansas aren't usually thought of as landscape photography destinations. That's exactly why I went there. Standing elbow-to-elbow with a hoard of other photographers to photograph the setting sun at Mesa Arch seems to me like a special kind of Hell. 

While my visit was quick, I loved what I saw and I can't wait to get back to Kansas to explore more thoroughly. The beautiful landscapes I found there were mine alone. In some locations, there wasn't another person (let alone another photographer) for miles around.
