+Paul Zizka​ great contest, and resulting photos. The stories about how each photographer had left their comfort zone to get each shot are great too. Thanks!

Starting tomorrow, I'm inviting photographers around the world to enter the #DitchComfort  Photography Challenge!

What does that mean? Find a new angle of a common subject, experiment without inhibition, get wet and dirty, try a new genre – whatever it means to you to step out of your comfort zone as a photographer. For submission info and all the contest rules and regs: http://bit.ly/ditchcomfort

Submit your landscape and outdoor adventure photos for a chance to win a 1 hour photo critiquing session with Paul Zizka and a copy of "Summits and Starlight: The Canadian Rockies"!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Green Paradise

This is from warmer times: an autumn view of Seven Veils Falls tumbling through greenery towards amazing Lake O'Hara.

Super excited to be shooting scenics for Lake O'Hara Lodge again this winter and spending more time exploring what is certainly one of the most stunning areas in the Canadian Rockies.

Happy Halloween from Banff everyone!

Aurora borealis over Lake Minnewanka, from a couple of nights ago.

They didn't call it the "Lake of the Water Spirits" for nothing...

A photographer has captured amazing images of methane bubbles in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. The pictures show a frozen lake with the icy 'circles' trapped (shown).
