Photographer's Note

Morraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks. Banff is probably the most well known and popular national park in Canada, and Morraine Lake is one of the best known destinations in the park. The lake is fed by melting glaciers, it's ice cold water mixed with rock dust, creating this beautiful blue colour. There is a big rock pile at the end of the lake, with huge boulders. Many people climb the rocks to get a better view of the lake, including me. It's a beautiful place to just sit and enjoy the view, like this woman perched on the rock.

This was taken with Fuji Velvia - the reason is that I needed a super wide angle, which I can't get on my digital because of the crop factor.
