The story behind the image

I couldn’t get enough of beautiful Moraine Lake situated within the Banff National Park. I knew beforehand that it would be beautiful, but I never had guessed that it was as beautiful as in my imagination (and the travel guide books we’ve read.)

So, here is yet another shot of the lake. We had an early breakfast and drive up to the lake ahead of the crowds to catch the lake undisturbed from canoers and tourists. And we were successful!

I like the clear colors (of course), and the logs in the water which seem to be ubiquitous in Canada but rather rarely spotted in Europe. Nice.
