Bazzar Cattle Pens-Photo by Patrick Emerson

The Bazaar Cattle Pens in Matfield Green, Kansas, offer photographers a glimpse into the state’s ranching history. Situated along the Scenic Byway of Flint Hills, these century-old cattle pens bear testimony to Kansas’s cattle drive era. This location provides a unique opportunity to photograph rustic wooden structures set against the grandeur of the surrounding tallgrass prairie. The contrast of the weathered wood against the sweeping green pastures and bright blue sky provides a distinct color palette for photographers. Wildlife photographers may capture shots of cattle, birds, and other prairie-dwelling species. As the day wanes, the setting sun casts long shadows and bathes the pens in warm, golden light, making it an ideal setting for golden hour photography. The historical and rustic appeal of Bazaar Cattle Pens makes it a notable photo spot in Kansas.
