It's starting to look like international travel won't be on the itinerary for quite some time. Luckily, there's plenty to explore in our own backyard. Canada is home to incredible landscapes, from the enchanting rugged coasts of the maritimes to the wide open flat prairies to mountains scraping the sky.

These photographers make the most of their proximity to the Canadian Rockies, taking epic landscape shots that will make you truly understand why they call it "the true north strong and free."

Cascade Falls, the Canadian Rockies, Banff

Paul Zizka


Landscape and adventure photographer Paul Zizka focuses on sharing what he describes as “under-documented” scenes from around the world. Zizka captures compelling images of destinations ranging from Greenland to Hawaii, but his love for his home in Banff is evident from the regular appearances the national park’s landscapes make in his feed. This downward perspective on Cascade Falls, which can be spotted from the highway just south of Banff proper, provides an especially dramatic vantage on a well-loved attraction.

We love the pinky glow of this early morning shot she took of Berg Lake in Mount Robson Provincial Park.
