GOLDEN GLOW Mount Assini­boine, Canada

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - 360˚ Viewfinder - Pho­tog­ra­pher: Paul Zizka

When sci­en­tist Ge­orge Daw­son was map­ping the Cana­dian Rock­ies in 1885, he spied a plume of cloud hang­ing above a great pyra­mi­dal tip. It re­minded him of the smoke that rose above the tipis of the First Na­tions’ Assini­boine peo­ple, and he named it thus. We can often over­lay our ideas and pre­sup­po­si­tions upon na­ture on our trav­els; we go ex­pect­ing to see the fa­mous images we’ve seen repli­cated time and again, then end up tak­ing the same shots. This is why pho­tog­ra­pher Paul Zizka has sought to reimag­ine the Rock­ies in a se­ries of pho­tos that put him­self and oth­ers in the frame – a re­minder that we’re al­ways some­where in the shot, vis­i­ble or other­wise. The Cana­dian Rock­ies: Redis­cov­ered (Rocky Moun­tain Books, £35) by Paul Zizka is out now
