[VIDEO] Faces of Boulder: Shankar ~ Yoga Edition

February 10th, 2024

  Since the beginning of The Faces of Boulder Project the AboutBoulder photography team has primarily focused our attention on multiple people for every online post, but this edition of the Faces of Boulder will be different because it’s all about one very special person who lives here in Boulder, Shankar Moghe. Travis Bildahl and I ran into Shankar at the Eben G. Fine Park on a nice afternoon and realized right away that we had encountered a very unique individual that was self-actualized. Shankar Moghe stretches out his legs on his mat in Eben G. Fine Park to cool down after doing... Read More

Monday Sunset At Sunrise Boulder-Style, Warm Weather Travel

January 29th, 2024

  Sunset Point at Sunset                                         photo Lenny Lensworth Frieling Boulderites travel.  Summer and winter, North and South and all points in between. My rationalization for posting a sunset picture at sunrise is simple. Sunset in one place means it IS sunrise in another. I suppose that if you are a “flat earther” this presents some problems in perspective, but these are not my problems!  So I am taking the liberty of blogging with a sunset, at sunrise. Additionally, eating too many edibles can result in waking... Read More

Saturday Sundown in Boulder. BUFFS, REST TONIGHT, WIN TOMORROW!!!

January 20th, 2024

I admit it. As one Boulderite to another, I am addicted. The rapidity of the addiction is scary, and I caution all of you! Beware of the addictive Lady Buffs’ Basketball! After only ONE game, against UCLA, I have already gotten tickets for tomorrow, Sunday’s game. PAC 12 USC is visiting, hopefully for the lessons that our BUFFS are happy to teach them! There are many reasons for my sudden addiction, including discovering that I enjoy the superstar women’s play more than the men’s basketball games. I like the skill, the heart, the speed, and the vibes. I like the length... Read More

Longs the LONG way!

December 31st, 2023

Longs Peak from the Scenic Route, Lyons to Estes Park Longs Peak overlooks Boulder like a giant guardian towering from on high, looking down from Rocky Mountain National Park It looks different every day, every hour of every year and from every angle. This shot is part of a drive from Boulder to Estes Park taking the “scenic route.”  Route 36 is the “short way” from Lyons to Estes Park and to the main Park entrance IF you take the right, (ignoring your screaming phone navigator) you might find the 20 minute drive taking an hour. FAR longer than the normally slower longer... Read More

Boulder’s Ephemeral Sunrises and Sunsets, Boulder’s Special Light

December 20th, 2023

Boulder light, great art light, can be dramatic. Our first pic falls into that category. The dramatic is in contrast to the subtle, which frequently greats ouf visions of clouds and sun.

The rest of the focus of this article is the more subtle sunset and sunrise lighting.    Lensworth Boulder, Colorado, is renowned for its mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets, attributed to what many describe as the area’s “good light.” Lensworth This unique lighting phenomenon has made the city a favorite spot for... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

October 8th, 2023

Some people shy away from cameras – others jump in front of them. Peter Hurley, a world-renowned headshot photographer, has put his own spin on this. He believes that a good portrait requires that the camera doesn’t mess with the subject, but that the subject messes with the camera. Once someone loses sight of the insecurities provoked by the camera, they start to perform for it. People start to play with the camera. They stare into it as if they were playing head games. They treat it as if it were a person looking at them – a person they want to make an impression on. These two girls were... Read More

The Boulder Bubble and Beyond

May 1st, 2023

Boulder is a city and county of many parts. Anyone who lives or visits here can’t help noticing. Within an hour’s drive of downtown you can find everything from hamlets nestled into pine-covered foothills to municipalities threading cottonwood traces, from the pristine vistas of Rocky Mountain National Park to the anchor of the Great Plains spreading eastward. Given that variation, it’s no surprise a host of interests come into play. Businesses—from national corporations to one-off boutiques—have made their home in the region. Industries as diverse as aerospace and recreation find a... Read More

January 31st, 2023

“Boulder has it’s own way of bringing happiness into people’s lives. The atmosphere is incomparable. It’s an escape, but the good kind.

Colorado Visitors Surprised by Wild Wedding Guest

May 24th, 2019

A couple from Illinois visited Rocky Mountain National Park this week to get married and were startled when a moose came into view in their snowy May background. The couple made several attempts to take pictures and say their vows, but the stubborn guest continued to meander closer and closer. The couple said that they had never seen a moose before, and their photographer noted that the couple was terrified; she kept trying to get them to pay attention to their pictures, but they were in awe of the wildlife. The surprise guest and late spring snowstorm led to some stunning wedding pictures for... Read More

Consumption Junction

January 23rd, 2017

Where do you go to consume marijuana legally in Boulder?  A perplexing question for the thousands of tourists who come to our city looking for the “cannabis experience.”  Even more disappointing, the residents who live here don’t have access to a legal space either.  As a matter of fact, adults over the age of 21 may consume marijuana on private property with the homeowners permission— and that’s it!  Even if you rent, take a minute to check your lease for addenda about cannabis consumption.  Chances are, consumption is prohibited anywhere on the property, including the confines... Read More
