ABOUT THE IMAGE:
During my time in the Canadian Rockies of Alberta Canada I visited Moraine Lake on a number of occasions. I continually went back there not only to capture it under varying conditions but simply because the place is AMAZING. Each and every time I made it up there I would sit and stare in awe. It is hard not to.

Prior to my latest visit of this location I had captured it under your typical sunny summer conditions and on other occasions completely or partially frozen over but I still wasnít satisfied. I wanted it snow covered with the lake in its liquid state.

On this particular occasion I was driving back to where I was living in Canmore, Alberta, Canada from Olympic National Park in Washington U.S.A. It was a long day of driving and after just having spent almost 2 months living out of my van/tent on the road I was ready to get home to Canmore. Anyway, I was just one hour from Canmore at 10:30pm when it started to snow pretty heavily, enough so that I was convinced it was going to stick (It was fall so the temperatures had just began to take a dive becoming cold enough for snow to not melt as soon as it landed). I thought to myself, this may be the last and only opportunity I get to shoot Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks blanketed in snow. I figured it was too good of an opportunity to pass up and spent the night in the van hoping the conditions cleared in the morning.

Iím happy I decided to stick it out for one last night. What a magic morning.

What a beautiful shot! I too was enthralled with Moraine Lake when I visited. I love the fact that you give background with the photo. I am a photographer just starting out and still learning the ropes. Would you mind answering a couple questions for me? What is your camera? What settings did you use? Thank you so much!! You are an amazing photographer!

Oh, Canada, why must you be so pretty?
This is one of the many places I'd love to live in, aside from Switzerland, I have a lot of other places but Canada and Switzerland top my chart.
Beautiful shot, beautiful detail, I love the fog surrounding the Mountains in the background.
