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.

#1 Cypres Tree Tunnel, California
Cypres Tree Tunnel is a famous spot just an hour out of San Fransisco. Its just magical during sunrise on a clear day.
#2 Athabasca Falls, Canada
Instagram famous spot at Athabasca Falls. I didn't dare to stand on the rock, but luckily a girl wanted to pose for me.
#3 Emerald Lake, Canada
When I checked out Emerald Lake I could only wonder that I want to live in that amazing lodge.
#4 Peyto Lake, Canada
It was one of the coldest nights of my trip, since I was camping all the time! But when I woke up I got treated to this winter wonderland.
#5 Antalope Canyon, Arizona
The Lion, famous from the National Geographic cover photo. An amazing experience to capture in person.
#6 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.
#7 Glacier Point Yosemite, California
I took this shot during a full moon. I was amazed of the scenery of this lookout.
#8 Horseshoe Bend, Arizona
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.
#9 Bow River, Canada
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
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!
