BANFF, AB – Tourists on Moraine Lake in Banff National Park Canada (Ian Yacobucci/Borderless Travels)

Moraine Lake:

Arguably the most beautiful lake in Canada, Moraine lake is a natural Canadian icon that has filled traveler’s photo albums for decades.  Located in Banff National Park the bright cerulean blue waters reflect the natural wonders of valley of the 10 peaks that watch over it.

The incredible iridescent blue-green colour is a result of the sun’s reflection on rock flour (fine-grained rock particles created by glacial grinding  and brought into the lake via glacial melt water).   In the light of the day the majesty of the lake, its colour, and the enormous mountains that surround it are irresistible and hard to leave.

During the summer months Moraine Lake is one of the most popular tourists destinations in the Banff/Lake Louise region so get there early and enjoy a short hike around the main entrance or a more epic journey into the Canadian wilderness.

What I used: ISO 100 – 28mm – F/11 – Sec 1/650

Happy shooting,
