Chimney Rock, in western Nebraska, was one of the most prominent sites along the Oregon Trail. The clay and sandstone structure rises 325 feet above the valley, and can be seen for miles across the Nebraska flatlands. The rock itself has changed over time, slowly eroding to what you see now. It is anyone's guess how long this unique structure will last.
The rock is featured on the back side of the Nebraska state quarter, noting its importance to the state's history itself.

Hello Amber. This is a very interesting rock formation. I like the isolation of the rock structure. The wide plains on the forground makes the spire more prominent. Very nice color and details in the picture. Lets hope the tower will last for a very long time so maybe I will get a chance to see it :-)

what a wonderful landscape-shot, amber! :-)
excellent capture of the isolated rock, well placed off-centered
on the right side and perfect 13 - 2/3 distribution of
earth and sky.
too bad this amazing nature-formed "statue" will be gone
in a couple 100 years...
well seen & done, thorsten.

You have shown us a very interesting place. It's a good idea not to center the image in the mountain, but to show us the enviroment where it's located.
