Boulder Canyon Drive goes up a beautiful canyon in the Rocky Mountains that connect Nederland and Boulder. A scenic nature view of a rocky wall pinnacle in Boulder Canyon with the sun rising over the point. A view in Boulder Canyon where the rock climbers like to hang out called the narrows. This pinnacle caught my eye as the sun was just rising over it.
The first time I ever saw Boulder Canyon and may be the same for you, ( if you are older) was in the opening credits Of the old show Mork and Mindy. They are in a jeep riding in the canyon then some shots around town and on the Pearl Street Mall. After seeing that I knew I had to check this place out. The start of a love affair with Boulder County. As a matter of fact, at one time we used to live two doors down from the Mork and Mindy house on Pine Street and would sit on the porch drinking beer saying “NANO NANO”. Fun times! Great town and great memories. How about you? Have you been here? Leave a comment below.
Okay back to the canyon, it is one of the most beautiful ones on the front range. There is a cool tunnel and Boulder Falls three 3/4 of the way up. The best part of living on the foothills of the Rockies in Boulder County is you have many choices of canyons that all lead up to the high country above Golden, Boulder and Lyons.
We are lucky to have about six canyons to choose from for a great scenic drive and each one is a little different. You can even do a nice loop, up one and down another. Boulder Canyon is the fastest way to get up top to Nederland from Boulder. There are lots of roads and other canyons that connect to it.
So my plan for shooting on this day as I was getting a little late morning start was to head to the Canyon where the light would be right and to photograph rock climbers and anything that caught my eye. This was one place and composition for a majestic sight. The image is also available in black and white. Hope you enjoy.
Check Out These Awesome Ready To Hang Acrylic Nature Art
This stunning artwork gets printed directly onto the back of a 1/4″ thick sheet of clear acrylic.
The image is the art – it doesn’t get any cleaner than that!
All acrylic prints ship within 3 – 4 business days and arrive “ready to hang” with four aluminum mounting posts (Option #1) or hanging wire (Option #2).
The high gloss of the acrylic sheet complements the rich colors of the image to produce stunning results.
There are two different ways to mount your acrylic print.
Option #1 (Mounting Posts) – Attach your print to your wall with four aluminum mounting posts. The cylindrical cap of each mounting post can be removed, allowing you to thread a small screw along the center axis of the of post and into the wall. When you’re finished, simply reattached each cap, and you’re done. The mounting posts act as stand-offs and keep your print separated from the wall by 1″. All of the required mounting hardware (i.e. posts, screws, and wall anchors) is included with your print.
Option #2 (Hanging Wire) – With this option, your acrylic print is attached to a 1/4″ thick black board which has a wooden frame and hanging wire attached to the back. There are no metal mounting posts at the corners. Simply put a nail in your wall, hang your print from the hanging wire, and you’re done. Due to the thickness of the black board and mounting frame, your print is separated from the wall by 1.50″ . Order Acrylic Nature Art Here
