After spending four weeks exploring the Italian Dolomites, I am convinced it is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Over the years, I have traveled to many mountainous places, including the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, Ecuador, Switzerland, but nothing compares to the magnificent peaks of the Dolomites.

My wife and I chose to visit the Dolomites in the fall because the colors in the landscapes are outstanding at this time of year. We were not disappointed. The fall colors combined with the dramatic mountain peaks made this the most perfect place for a landscape photographer.
