Description

Without a doubt, this is the all-time bestselling book on the Canadian Rockies.

 

Through the lens of his camera, Douglas Leighton has captured the magic and the majesty of the Canadian Rockies. Because he is a resident of these mountains himself, his reverence for the alpine wilderness is evident in his photography. His images successfully convey the pristine nature of this ever-changing landscape. Leighton's work represents both his respect for the unique character of the Rockies and his aspiration to share with others the beauty of this untamed place.

About the author

Douglas Leighton grew up in the Canadian Rockies, a lucky fate which has inspired his lifelong fascination with nature and natural landscapes. Prior to starting a full time freelance photography career in Banff in 1985, he worked as a park naturalist for eight years in British Columbia, where he developed his photography skills while shooting for interpretive slide shows. His photographs have been published by the National Geographic Society, Audubon Society Books, Time-Life Books and in Canadian Geographic, Nature Canada, Equinox, and Beautiful British Columbia magazines, among others.
