I had been shooting scenes of the open prairies and flint hills when I came upon an area that had what seemed to be acres and acres of exposed limestone. Not unique for the flint hills, limestone ledges are an intricate part that make the flint hills what they are. But this area had the whole hillside of limestone exposed. I proceeded to look for scenes to portray this view which I try to capture and you can see at the gallery here. As I walked about the stone I discover this one hunk of rock with barbwire lying across. It struck me as a quintessential intimate image of the precious limestone of the flint hills and the use it has instilled with man.
