We went to visit Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada in July 2013. This photograph reminds me how beautiful Lake Moraine is especially with the Canadian Rockies’ reflection.

We were fortunate it was sunny and virtually no wind on the day we visited.  Therefore the water was so still which allowed the reflection to be perfect.  I was fortunate for the natural lighting with the still waters so we could enjoy this perfect scene.

Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake. The perfect blue color is due to the refraction of the light off the rock flour which is continually disposited into the lake.

It amazes me how things in Nature can fit so perfectly together to compliment each other.  This photograph illustrates how the perfect sunlight, mountains, blue Moraine Lake and the still waters provide this amazing scene.

This photograph does reflect the true colors we witnessed.  It is real and untouched!
