Photo of the Month: Rain Storm over Calgary - Canada from the Air

I've said this before: we get a lot of incredible photo submissions for our Canada from the Air project. From the pristine coast, to the spectacular Rocky Mountains, across the sprawling Prairies all the way through to the magnificent eastern provinces and the Maritimes.

But this picture takes the proverbial cake.

Simply titled: Rain Storm over Calgary, this amazing shot was snapped by WestJet staffer Joe Postnikoff, and captures Mother Nature in all her glory from a unique perspective as a massive rain cloud dumps its contents on to Cowtown. 

Our country looks beautiful from any angle, but the views afforded through an airplane window produce some breathtaking shots and Canada from the air is truly a sight to behold. 

You can view more of the stunning entries here and of course many of the submissions are now hanging on the walls of the A and B Piers in the terminal.

Anybody who wants to submit to Canada from the Air can email entries to or tweet them to @yvrairport and include the hashtag #YVRCanada and where the photo was taken. Our next round of photos is going up soon so be to sure get your pics in!
