EACH WEEK WE CHOOSE OUR favorite images from readers, fans, and travelers, who tag their photos with #travelstoke and post them on our Instagram account. These pictures provide a daily dose of inspiration, and challenge us to photograph the world in innovative ways.

Here are this week’s editors’ picks of people finding some serious #travelstoke.

1. Awesome shot by Stevin Tuchiwsky from Lundbreck Falls in Alberta, Canada.

The ability to have so many diverse landscapes in one area I think is my favorite thing of Alberta.

In Awe /// Here’s a re edit and re crop of my all time favourite photo of myself! Using just a tripod and I timer, I took this fun selfie last February during on of the most insane northern light shows I’ve ever witnessed! The lights were visible for hours throughout the night and full of so many beautiful colours! I feel very honoured as this shot is being used as the cover shot of this months @outpostmagazine as well as being used in the yearly Nature Canada calandar! Alongside that I just found out this morning that I was in the @natgeo Daily Dozen yesterday!!! Psyched at how much recognition this photo has received and I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes next! ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Isaiah 40:29
