Colorado Nature Art For Your Home or Office
Posted by BoulderCountyPhotographer
Towering mountain peaks, miles upon miles of the Rocky Mountains coupled with mystic waterfalls that not only dazzle but enchant the mind’s eye – this is the wondrous beauty of Colorado’s natural landscape. Welcome to Paradise…
As a writer I could pen volumes on the Colorado and her endless bounties, but for those unable to get here and physically experience nature in all her glory, the question remains? How do we share these beauties that should be accessible to everyone, whether you are an out-of-towner or across the ocean on a different continent?
As luck would have it, we live in the age of digital technology where “visiting” the Rocky Mountains or the Black Canyon is at the touch of a button. Better yet, we have the ability to search for amazing photographs and fine art of Colorado’s incredible landscape.
What do Bo Insogna, John Fielder and Doug Tomlinson have in common ? They produce some of the finest photography and fine art from Colorado; and as a eco-conservationist (who loves art) I was overwhelmed as I perused images that seemed to have an almost “God-like” touch.
I was a young boy the first time I heard the word “art collector” and I gathered from the hushed tones that being one meant you had serious green at your beck and call. How times have changed though, for now everyone is able to own a stunning piece of beauty that calls to them; from the photographic prints and fine art reproductions of panoramic landscapes and nature’s flora and fauna in all her glory, the sky is literally the limit on what you can call your own.
If you are thinking about decorating your office or home, you couldn’t have a better setting to choose from. As an admirer of Feng Shui, I have no doubt that these images would go a long way towards restoring balance within the human soul. The tranquility exuded is unparalleled, the depth and richness (amazingly these were also projected in the Black and White images I viewed) draws you in with welcoming arms and, for a moment, you experience a shot of envy – what must it have been like to actually be there in person, to breathe in crystal clear air, to view that unadulterated, naked skyline ?
Whether you are a nature lover or not, there is NO way you won’t appreciate these scenes. They light up an ordinary setting, adding richness and vitality to an otherwise boring office or boardroom environment.
Many of us may be firmly rooted in the suburbs and high-rise apartments where the only spot of nature might be the odd bunch of trees decorating a sidewalk. Sadly, this is a reality, our constant need to encroach on mother nature and her gifts. These artists and their life’s work should serve as a reminder of all that is good, pure and wholesome. These landscapes, these treasures, wait for us to look upon them anew and appreciate them for what they truly are:
That is Colorado Nature Art…

About BoulderCountyPhotographerJames "Bo" Insogna was Born and raised in Pittsburgh PA. He studied with the New York Institute of Photography. He Started his photography career 1984. 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 1987 the economy got bad in Boulder so he decided to make a move to Scottsdale Arizona. Once in Arizona, He became a staff photographer for the Phoenician Arabian Horse Magazine doing the covers, inside lay outs and a two page spread called Bo Trek. 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.
