I think the beauty of Lake Louise is truly spectacular and left me awe-struck. I took these photos in late August, on a grey, misty, rainy morning during a trip to Banff National Park, Alberta Canada. Lake Louise is a glacial mountain lake in the park. According to the guide books, the turquoise colour of the lake comes from the rock flour that is eroded from the mountains by the glaciers and carried into the lake. The rock flour is so fine that it is suspended in the water, creating the blue-green colour of the water. The colour becomes more turquoise depending on the light and weather.
I thought these photos captured this week’s photo challenge theme near and far. If you look closely at the first photo, you can almost make out a canoe in the distance.
