Today Aurora salutes all veterans. We want to take a moment to especially honor and thank the veterans in our contributor ranks for their service, and to all the military photographers for everything that they do in the name of truth and country. Thank you to Aaron Ansarov, Tom Sperduto, Stacy Pearsall, Patrick Scholz, and the countless others.

New Images for October

Man Stands On The Niblet, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada

Autumn is officially here, which means gourds, an explosion of colors in nature, spooky children and candy sugar comas for many adults. In this month’s new images, you can reminisce on the summer with ice cold beers on a beach, fly fishing in Lake Tahoe, or SUP with friends in Florida. Or, if you’re like most of our photographers and like the winter, you can make tracks at a ski resort in Bend, Oregon, trek on glaciers in Alaska, do yoga on summits in BC, or eat pizza in the Dolomites.

You can travel to rainforests in Kauai, watch the northern lights in Lofoten, highline in Joshua Tree, canoe in Canyonlands National Park, drink tea on a rooftop in Marrakech, fly-fish on the Kennebec in Maine, marvel at the pageantry of a parade in the Philippines, or escape to a secluded lake in New Zealand.

See all that, plus a man fishing while riding a horse and swashbucklers under an aurora at Banff National Park, in this month’s curated gallery of outdoor imagery:  http://www.auroraphotos.com/result?webseries_id=22142
