Striking sunsets that flooded the prairies in colors of gold, mighty storms, the tranquility of a starry night sky and so much more were all captured this last year. Kansas photographers, and those visiting the Sunflower State, showcased the unique beauty only found in our state. Many shared their work for all enjoy on Instagram.
