Visiting Colorado in the fall is like hitching a ride on a fast-spinning carousel and looking through a kaleidoscope at the same time. Mother Nature serves up a magnificent show to visitors and photographers from all over the world in late September (if she’s on time). However, there are some traps. As most of you [...]
