Moraine Lake II

Banff National Park, Canada

Taken at sunrise in late September, Moraine Lake is nestled in the Valley of the Ten Peaks (Wenkchemna Peaks) 15 km (20 min) from Lake Louise Village. The road is only open from late May until early October.
Numerous glaciers, lakes and majestic mountains combine to make the Moraine Lake and Lake Louise area one of the most photographed and visited locations in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Its iridescent turquoise colour has earned Moraine Lake the designation, "Jewel of the Rockies," and its intoxicating beauty entices guests to return time and time again.

Gary, your view of this view entices visitors to return again and again, too
Guest 03-Jan-2006 15:01
Excellent work... We spent 2 weeks in Banff and Jasper in September last year (2005).
Unless you have seen it in person it is hard to convey the beauty but you have done a super job. I truly envy you living so close to paradise. If we didn't have roots here in Ontario we would surely join you in Calgary (also a fantastic city btw)
We are now talking about retiring to the west.

Nice pictures. You make that camera sing for sure. I sure wish we would have had weather like that for our trip. Never saw the sun shine on the 10 peaks the entire 4 days we were in Lake Louise. Thanks for the email message also.

Beautiful scenery, excellent place to take picture. Only the sky seems to me to blue/red and maybe to strong color.
