In June, to celebrate our upcoming centennial, we asked our members to send us their best photos capturing the spirit of engineering and geoscience in Alberta. Our members enthusiastically answered that call: we received almost 200 photos exhibiting the fascinating province around us, and it was almost impossible to select the 13 best.
Photo content included the beauty of nature, feats of engineering, and iconic Alberta landmarks. Check out the winners and the top three photo selections below.
