Photographer's Note

Lake Louise, morning after the first snowfall of the year. I have very few pictures of Lake Louise, because it's usually very crowded and while the lake is beautiful, it's not as spectacular as some other places nearby. In this case, I just stopped by Lake Louise while I was on my way from Moraine Lake to Lake O'Hara, and the conditions were perfect. Fresh snow, early morning light and not too many people. Lake Louise is known for it's light blue/green water, which is so bright that it almost looks fake. Since the light is at such a low angle here you only get a hint of that colour in a few places were the sun comes through the trees and hits the lake. The mountain is Mount Fairview, and the small building is the boathouse, where you can rent canoes. The small bit of yellow/orange on the mountain is a group of larch trees, which turn golden colour in the fall.
