The Jumper by Tina-Louise Harris As Canadians age it becomes more of a challenge to stay active and healthy . This Greyhound's athlete at the B.C. 55 + Games at Town Centre Stadium in Coquitlam shows although its not easy, you just have to jump in to a healthy lifestyle to reap the rewards.
Keep It In the Ground by Clare Yow In May 2016 on six continents, thousands participated in rallies to break free from fossil fuels. Activists on the land and water in Vancouver boldly surrounded the Kinder Morgan oil facility on the Salish Coast to demonstrate that people power and renewable energy needs to be the future.
RCMP Musical Ride by June Szasz I wanted to created an image that emphasizes the "Musical" part of the ride, over the amazing precision of the spectacle. While there may have been a few warts on the RCMP image, I don't think that anyone can argue that it is of the most Canadian of our icons. And for the most part, one of which can all be rightfully very proud.
Iridescent Kelp by June Szasz The lipids in some of our west coast kelps produce a beautiful iridescence.
Refugees Welcome by Clare Yow #RefugeesWelcome rallies were held in over 50 cities across Canada in September 2015. They called for change to Canadian immigration and refugee policies and an end to all forces of displacement, whether with Canada's role in forced displacements globally or on Indigenous lands at home. This image was photographed at the Vancouver rally, where Tima Kurdi, the sister of Abudllah Kurdi who lost his wife and children while trying to reach the shores of the Greek Island Kos, spoke.
Hooked by Nicholas Taffs I took my 1.5 year old daughter out ice fishing for the first time. During her nap in the tent I decided to play around in the frigid cold. This was the result.

Seven Silos by Nicholas Taffs I chose to add this image to science and innovation because farming has become exactly that. I have always been fascinated with the sciences behind farming. The technology involved to grow a crop and cultivate it and the organizations involved is truly amazing. Something as simple as silos, which has become a fixture in rural Canada landscapes, boasts innovations of the past that have passed the test of time and are still used today. Without the science and innovation in the farming industry, our cities would become obsolete.
Path Less Travelled by Nicholas Taffs A lone hiker takes the long hike back down after summitting the Windtower in Kananaskis, near Canmore Alberta.
Smoke and Mirrors by Nicholas Taffs This image was taken on a frosty early winter day trip out to go look for some wildlife. Fresh snow had fallen the night prior, so I thought I'd go and see if I could get on the tracks of some critters up in the mountains. I had no luck on that aspect, but I did get this image just before the mid morning fog lifted.
Badlands by Nicholas Taffs An old abandoned farm house stands alone weathering away over time just outside of Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta.
Building Affordable Housing by Mike Lane As more and more Canadians find themselves unable to afford a home, we will need to find solutions to urban sprawl and the cost of housing. Revitalizing our inner cities is one small step forward.

Dettah Ice Road by Gary Clean I created this photgraph last February during a visit to Yellowknife, NT. Yellowknife is such a rugged and beautiful part of Canada making it a must see destination if you have never been. This is a self portrait where I was lying down on the road with an oncoming truck very far off in the distance. I was amazed at how beautiful the color of the ice was and how interesting the crack formations were. It is certainly a place that defines the character and beauty of Canada in my mind.

The 3 R's are the future of a prosperous and healthy Canada by Mike Lane Reducing the amount of municipal solid waste we produce is by far the most effective way to reduce the flow of garbage into landfill. To be really effective, we have to incorporate the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle – into our daily routine. This means reducing and reusing materials and packaging wherever possible. Materials and packaging that cannot be reused should be recycled at home, work and school. Individual Canadians can help close the loop on recycling by purchasing recycled and recyclable products. This photo, taken in Victoria BC, is an example of how important it is to the future of Canada, and our planet, that we recycle everything that we possibly can.
Cormorants perch above Purple Martin nesting boxes by Mike Lane The western Purple Martin, Progne subis arboricola, is a Species At Risk in BC and breeds along the Pacific Coast of North America from British Columbia to California. In BC Purple Martins are only found along coastal areas of the Strait of Georgia as far north as Campbell River, the historic northern extent of their range. The first Purple Martins begin returning from South America to their BC nesting sites in April. Nesting starts in May and in July the adult birds are kept busy feeding as many as five young per nest. By August the young are ready to migrate south to Brazil with the adult birds where they spend the winter. Due to the loss of natural nesting habitat, Purple Martins have become reliant on man made nest boxes such as those found here at Gowlland-Tod Provincial Park. They used to nest in woodpecker cavities in tree snags in open forest or along freshwater. Most of these snags have been lost due to logging, urbanization and fire prevention efforts. In this photo, common cormorants use the pilings to perch and dry their wings. Their presence doesn't seem to affect the purple martins below.
