Paul Zizka is a landscape photographer based in Alberta, Canada. With such scenes of mountains, lakes and lights as this part of the world boasts, it is no surprise that this is his subject matter of choice. But unlike his earlier work, Paul Zizka has gone on to capture himself in these breathtaking surroundings. By snapping only his silhouette, however, he manages to keep the awe factor going strong.

In particular, Paul Zizka focuses on self portraits shot against the Aurora Bourealis. He states, "The aurora has an amazing way to renew itself and show ever-different combinations of color and textures." Adding, "My hope is that through my photography people will rediscover the precious connection they can have with the wonders of our planet."
