My name is Guido Diana and September 2016 I decided to fulfill my long life dream to travel and photograph North America. With more than 24.000 km traveled by air and road, I witnessed some of the most incredible scenery and adventures.

During my three months of travel, I have seen the yellow aspen fall colors of Colorado, the incredible lakes of the Canadian Rockies, drove San Francisco’s Golden Gate bridge, Stood at the foot of the Grand Canyon, had an encounter with a wild grizzly bear and saw much more breathtaking views!

What I saw in North America blew my mind, and in my opinion, this continent has some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. That’s why I want to share my 35 best shots of this trip with you.

This is about 40 miles north of San Francisco. At the very end of the tree tunnel a wireless telegraph station where operators sent Morse code messages from the ships to shore. With the decline of Morse code, the station was closed down in the late 1990s

I LOVE how the tree stands out of the rock over the water. The head­wa­ter comes from the Columbia Glac­i­er about 70 kilo­me­ters (43 miles) south. Among the most pow­er­ful and breath­tak­ing falls in the Rocky Moun­tains,

When I checked out Emerald Lake I could only wonder that I want to live in that amazing lodge.

Equally spectacular is this lake in the early summer. Due to its high altitude, the lake is frozen from November until June. The vivid turquoise color of the water, caused by powdered limestone, is mostly seen In July as the snow melts from the surrounding mountains. 7d6e2da645...3b3518.jpg 7d6e2da64500317e10903bf724e3c3d1-5869e2f3b3518.jpg

#6 Courthouse Mountain, Colorado

Courthouse Mountain, Colorado

One of the most difficult hikes to reach this place, but the view and landscape are one of the most unique I have ever witnessed! I still can't believe how yellow those aspen trees are during fall.

I cannot decide what amazes me more: the beautiful landscape or that stunning sky. I don't know why, but it gives me such a good feeling, a "childhood-like" feeling, like when you visited places like this and felt simply astonished by the beauty of the world you were beginning to discover. Boy, I wish I was either a child again or a bird, both free souls that can fly away from the restraints of concrete and iron cities and adulthood... *sigh*

I had a big storm during my visit to the super famous Horseshoe Bend. I just loved how the mood of the sky was and for a few seconds I got a glimpse of the blue sky.

Flash floods are not uncommon in the South Western part of the U.S. especially during the summer months. I'm glad to see your wonderful shot, especially as you described it.... "the mood of the sky". Beautiful!

Near Lake Louise you can find this awesome train track next to the Bow River. I waited for 45 minutes in a temperature of 5 degrees celsius for the train to come!

#10 Athabasca Glacier, Canada

Athabasca Glacier, Canada

That time I found an actual ice cave! You won't believe how blue the ice is. Just the feeling of walking inside and touching it just gave me goosebumps! However how beautiful this is, it also made me aware how major the problems are of accelerating climate change. The fast melting of the glacier is easily visible!
