This photograph of one of Canada’s most exquisite glacier-fed lakes was taken close to sunset at the start of the Canadian summer. “Lake Louise” is actually the name of the hamlet ringing the lake, and is nestled just west of Calgary, beside the Trans-Canada Highway. Three of the most dramatic peaks Canada has to offer fringe the hamlet and provide a bewitching backdrop to the already alluring turquoise waters of the mirror lake – Mount Temple, Mount Whyte, and Mount Niblock.
It snows all-year-round in Lake Louise, yet miraculously, the weather chose to be calm the day this photograph was taken, allowing for the even more stunning image of the sunset kissing the tops of the snow-dusted peaks, and throwing an ethereal light against an equally extraordinary sky.
Thank you Angelica! Love that place!
