Wildflowers On The Way

It's finally getting to be that time of year again. Wildflowers are once again appearing in Chautauqua Meadows below the Flatirons of Boulder, Colorado. It's always great to welcome back the golden banner to the meadow as it was when I photogrpahed the Flatirons this past Sunday. Technical Details: Nikon D810, Nikkor 16-35mm F4 AF VR ED lens

It’s beginning to look a lot like spring down here in Boulder now. Snow, rain and sunshine have turned the hillsides green. Along with the hillsides turning green another sure sign of spring has appeared in Chautauqua Meadows. The parade of wildflowers that blanket Chautauqua Park have begun their procession that typically lasts right up until early July.

The first wildflowers have started to bloom in earnest in Chautauqua with beautiful yellow golden banner appearing amongst the green grasses. The golden banner still has a little while to go before it will reach peak in the meadow but it’s always great to welcome these yellow blooms back. Golden Banner is typically one of the first wildflowers to appear in Chautauqua Meadow in early May but other wildflowers such as silver lupine will be making appearances as we move towards June. Here’s an image of the conditions at Chautauqua Park just below the Flatirons taken this past Sunday. Exciting times lay ahead for photographers as the change of season settles in.
