The Stories Behind the Images: Top 10 of 2014

It has been a wild year here at Paul Zizka Photography, with opportunities to shoot throughout the mountain parks and in remote destinations on the other side of the world. This collection comes from images I have posted on my Facebook Page. I don’t often have the chance to tell the stories behind the images, and the process is a far cry from “point and shoot”. So, for this round-up of top images from this past year, I have written out the stories behind each one. Thanks for taking the time to view and read, and I appreciate all your support the past year!

Who Turned the Lights On? Autumn Northern Lights Display in the Canadian Rockies

It had been awhile since the skies put on a really good show of Northern Lights here in the Rockies. Compared to the June 1 display, the skies have remained somewhat dormant, at times offering a that colourful glow but nothing to lose too much sleep over. That is until [insert date]. Seeing that the data was very promising, I head out for a night of photography with fellow aurora enthusiast John Price. The night took us to Two Jack Lake, Cascade Meadows and Vermilion Lakes – all very close to the Town of Banff. We discovered a beautiful display of colour early on, which never got very bright but covered a significant portion of the sky. The results were worth the sleepless night, and the loss of a boot to the firm grasp of mud and duck poop in Vermilion Lakes.

Enjoy!
