Yukon River Ice Shelf at Sunrise

Every Friday we feature an inspirational travel photo of a Canadian destination taken by one of our readers.

Why we chose it: The photographer risked his life by climbing (or rather, slithering) onto an ice shelf beside the fast-moving, freezing Yukon River to get this shot. We don’t generally condone entering into life-threatening situations to get a great photo, but everything about this scene is gorgeous—the detail in the ice and water, the golden glow of the sunrise reflected on the water, the drama of the clouds and the depth of layers created by the curve of the icy shoreline, the horizontal far shoreline and the uneven mountain horizon line.
