About the Book

Iconic and classic images of the Canadian Rockies are taken to new heights and completely reimagined in this stunning collection of contemporary photography by Paul Zizka. As a professional photographer and versatile adventurer, Paul has been able to access remarkable backcountry landscapes and dizzying peaks throughout the mountains of western Canada. The result is a collection of images that highlight difficult conditions and hard-to-reach places; alpine sports and backcountry experiences; unusual angles of common mountain subjects; and stars, Northern Lights and dramatic silhouettes. Together, this portfolio represents some of the most breathtaking and unique views of the Rockies to be published in years.
