An early snowfall hangs on pine trees and blankets the ground below a hillside covered with aspen trees in a variety of autumn colors in the Routt National Forest outside of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

The snow set in just as the fall colors were reaching their peak this fall while I was up in Steamboat Springs shooting with good friend and fellow photographer Rod Hanna. We had to spend a day waiting out the storm and were anxious to get out and see if the leaves were left hanging on the aspen trees. -- more --

One very popular area of Kauai is in the southeast corner of the island around Poipu Beach. The majority of the resorts are strung along the shoreline and there is a steady flow of tourists coming and going throughout the day. A major attraction close by is Poipu Beach Park, a nicely developed area with a long beautiful beach on one side and Brennecke's Beach on the other, popular with boogie boarders. Straddled between the two is an area lined with volcanic rock. -- more --

Kauai has hundreds of waterfalls dotting its tropical landscape. The mountains in the center of the island get more rain than anywhere else in the world and that water has to drop a couple of thousand feet to reach the ocean. The challenge for a photographer is how to get to them. Many are only accessible via a helicopter since they are deep in the rainforest. -- more --
