If we could use one word to describe Alberta, it's "magnificent." Whether it's mountains that touch the sky, lakes of stunning blue, or other sights that words just can't do justice, we have many talented photographers who love nothing more than to explore the backroads and mountain tops to find that amazing photo. Check out some of our favourites on Instagram below:

#tbt to when I photographed the wildfire on the Icefields Parkway last summer. Not only did I have my photos published by various media outlets around the world, but I had two of my photos published on the National Geographic website! Those photos were life changing for me. I used to be extremely shy (I still am somewhat lol) and kept most of my photography to myself, but after Michelle at the @huffingtonpost published my photos, I had enough courage to post them elsewhere which ultimately led to me being contacted by a Nat Geo editor actually requesting me to submit my photos to an assignment that Nat Geo wildfire photographer, Mark Thiessen, had created. What really excites me is that there is a possibility that one of the photos may one day be published in the magazine, 😊 fingers crossed!! I am really eager to get out there next summer and try my hand at this type of photography again.

What fascinates me about the stars, is how you can look up for endless hours and still find new ones, so many different colours and shapes. Photographing them is always fun, a 30 second exposure on a wide angle at a low aperture and high ISO will capture the magic! #WildMe #WildernessCulture #ExploreAlberta
