It’s that time of year, when I post my favourite panoramas of the past twelve months. It was a tough cull this year — there’s just so much beauty out there! If you’ve never been to the “Canadian Alps” (as they were once called in tourism brochures), I hope these shots inspire you to plan a trip here. And if you’re a Rocky Mountain veteran, may they bring you fond memories of this extraordinary place.

March: on the Dolomite Circuit, a ski tour around Dolomite peak, north of Lake Louise, with my friends Hannah, Marcus and Anna.
