The title of this photo essay is slightly misleading I’ll admit. While I’ve chosen to call this piece ‘Best of Canada’, but in reality, it should read ‘Best of British Columbia and Alberta‘. But that doesn’t flow as nicely. Here is a selection of photographs showcasing the Best of Canada… ok, the best of British Columbia and Alberta.

All the photographs are available from my brand new landscape photography shop, which you can visit here.

Fernie, British Columbia landscape photography: Last Fall I returned to Fernie for six amazing weeks.

Fernie, British Columbia landscape photography

Fernie, British Columbia landscape photography: This photograph was one of the first that really opened up my eyes to the possibilities that photography can offer.

Downtown Calgary, Alberta landscape photography

Downtown Calgary, Alberta landscape photography: This final photograph from my ‘Best of Canada’ essay has a funny story behind it. I was standing in a park, overlooking downtown Calgary at around 7.30am. I was setting up my shot when I heard a voice behind me and a jingle of cans. A refuse worker was shaking a bag of cans at me, asking me if I wanted them. He had mistaken me for a homeless person, in Canada, you can exchange your empty cans at recycling for money. When I told this story on facebook, my friends howled. Photograph details: F14.0, 14mm, ISO100, shot using an Olympus EM-5. If you are interested in purchasing this print, you can do so here.
