The past week has been a long year. 

With all that’s going on in the world, Can Geo staff have been craving a little peace. We’re grateful to the members of our Photo Club, who have continued to share beautiful landscape images that offer us a moment’s serenity and reprieve from the constant onslaught of COVID-19 news. 

We hope these photos help you switch off any anxieties for a few minutes and just enjoy the beauty of Canada from wherever you’ve found yourself these days.
