Welcome to this month’s feature photo roundup! This month our contributors were hard at work capturing photos all around the city.

With Stampede occupying half of the month, our contributors had the opportunity to join the action and photograph events around Calgary. In addition to Stampede, our contributors went out to explore nature and took some wonderful photos.

July 2-8

This week, our contributors photographed flowers, baby ducks, and the Canada Day fireworks in downtown Calgary.
