2023 Prime Time Calendar for Canadian Rockies Photography

 2023 EDITION - *FREE* 

Make the most of seasonal conditions and celestial phenomena with this planning calendar for photographers, curated by Paul Zizka! For the past decade, Paul has been carefully watching when particular seasons unfold, from the needles changing on Lyall's larch trees to methane bubbles appearing in frozen lakes. This calendar combines that knowledge with known celestial or annual events, creating the perfect tool to help you plan your photography in the Canadian Rockies. 

→ Note: This is a printable PDF catered to photographers, not to be confused with a hard-copy display/decorative wall calendar.
