In the middle a field in a remote area of Kansas, a series of large chalk formations rise from the ground. Surrounded by miles of flat farmland, Monument Rocks provide a striking contrast. On a hot summer day, the air lies still and heavy over the rocks. Low lying wildflowers provide occasional bursts of colour and the only sounds of life are the whirring grasshoppers that jump, startled, as you walk past.
