 Dusted Flatirons Chautauqua Park Boulder Colorado - James Bo Insogna

Scenic landscape view of freshly snow dusted Flatirons and people hiking at Chautauqua Park, Boulder Colorado. I really believe that you can not take a bad picture of the Flatirons. They are so majestic and are always changing with the light and weather. (Prints for sale online – Dusted Flatirons Chautauqua Park Boulder Colorado )

Chautauqua Park provides families with access to Open Space Mountain Park trails, which have a wide range of opportunities for children’s unstructured interaction with nature. The Chautauqua Trail leads up and to the backside of Flatiron #1 with terrific views across the Boulder Valley, Indian Peaks and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Chautauqua Park is a portion of an iconic historic landmark dating back to when the City of Boulder began preserving wild lands over 100 years ago. In the late 1890s, the Texas Board of Regents determined to establish a summer school for teachers in a cool climate. On July 4, 1898, over 4,000 people gathered for the opening day of the Colorado Chautauqua. Boulder civic leaders and Texas educators had joined together to create a cultural and educational summer retreat. Located at the base of Boulder’s Flatirons and one of only 25 National Historic Landmarks in the state of Colorado, the Colorado Chautauqua is one of only a few remaining chautauquas in the U.S. The City of Boulder owns the 40 acres of land underlying the Colorado Chautauqua, along with an Auditorium, the Dining Hall and the Academic Hall.

The Colorado Chautauqua, is the only Chautauqua west of the Mississippi River still continuing in unbroken operation since the heyday of the Chautauqua Movement in the 1920s.

He opened a studio in Boulder, Colorado downtown on the Boulder mall. Shooting for local newspapers, magazines, Skiing, Bicycling, models portfolios and some commercial work.

In the late 1980's - 1990's he was a respected member of the Arabian Horse Community in Arizona, chosen to photograph champions, riders, trainers and owners. From the first Arizona lightning monsoon season, Bo very quickly became a Lightning Storm Chaser. Striking-Photography.com, www.ArizonaLightning.com and aka www.TheLightningMan.com was born. A very fun, exciting and dangerous job! Since 1987 he has spent many years pursuing elusive lightning storms spanning miles of natural desert. It takes great dedication, courage and desire to grip a metal camera upon a metal tripod astride mountain peaks with lightning crashing mere paces away. His prints reflect the courage and passion he feels for his art. He has been featured on television and in print. In 1991 The VVA honored him by choosing his Photograph "Operation Desert Storm" as the official print of the Arizona Desert Storm Memorial Fund. The men and the flag represent the "Operation" and the Victory and Liberation of Kuwait. The Saguaro represents the "Desert" and the men and women who served in the Gulf. The Lightning represents the "Storm" and the Air War with swift, precise strikes. Twenty years after leaving Boulder, Bo decided to relocate his family back in Colorado. He settled in Boulder County.
