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.

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 over 100 of the most breathtaking and unique views of the Rockies to be published in years.
