Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Bob Dean on Colorado Eastern Plains
Colorado’s Eastern plains hold many opportunities to explore and photograph historic sites and natural beauty. Features include the 150-million-year-old dinosaur tracks in Picketwire Canyon, the remnants of the more recent human history preserved in local history museums and the stark realities of the Japanese Internment Camp near Granada, and the poignant reminders of Sand Creek. Couple those with the native rock art, the re-creation of Bent’s Old Fort trading post near La Junta and Julesburg, a town on the move and you can see why this region is worth spending many days exploring.
Our program will provide the audience with images and stories about many of the small towns, picturesque canyons, and the human history of this vast area.
Bob holds degrees in electrical engineering from San Jose State College (B.S. 1968) and Stanford University (M.S. 1975). While working in the fast-paced High-Tech world, he found relaxation in nature and wildlife photography. Over the years he honed his skills and in the early 2000s took the step to become a part-time professional. Since his retirement from the corporate world, he and his wife Nadine have “focused” on nature, wildlife, and travel photography, mostly teaching in the classroom and holding workshops in the field. Bob has been teaching and lecturing at many Colorado venues including the Rocky Mountain Conservancy, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Highlands Ranch Community Association, and other local organizations.
He was an assistant editor and featured writer/photographer for First Light Monthly Newsletter for Nature Photographers. He is also president of the Colorado Urban Wildlife Photo Club.
