Photo of the Month: Drayton Valley in Black and White - Canada from the Air

Each month, we recognize one of the many photographs we receive for our Canada from the Air project and name it Photo of the Month. February's photo was a bright, green shot of Cawston, B.C. that hadn't been digitally altered at all. This month, we took a different approach, selecting this black and white shot of Drayton Valley in Alberta..

Submitted via Instagram by user @Barbara_Rahal, this aerial shot taken en route from YEG (Edmonton International airport) to YVR looks to me like a Jackson Pollock painting. It's a starkly beautiful and unique aerial view that's a welcome addition to our growing gallery.

Thanks for submitting! 

If you want to be a part of the fun, submit pictures of our amazing country taken from the sky via Twitter or Instgagram with the hashtag #YVRCanada or email submissions to And follow us on Instagram!
