Chasing the light ...

Banff National Park, Canada

These photographers have gathered to capture the sunrise and changing morning light on Peyto Lake. Notice the different colors of the lake based on the light. Peyto Lake, high above the Bow Summit along the Rocky Mountain Trench, is fed by the runoff from the Peyto Glacier which gives it the magnificent blue colour. Located between Lake Louise and Jasper on the Icefields Parkway.

Olympus C-8080WZ

Just a sensational shot, Gary. The hanging morning clouds really give this an otherworldly effect. Got my vote.

Your are a lucky guy to have these views in your backyard. Excellent and I like the
inclusion of the many other photographers.

This is so beautiful that it brings tears to my eyes. I really have to resist the urge to book a plane ticket.

Wonderful! Great mist on the water.
Guest 20-Jul-2005 04:18
Another beauty Gary. The contrast of light and shade is quite effective, thanks to the lighter cloud/mist to blend the other areas together.

Breathtaking shot.
