Iconic

A little over a month ago, I found myself atop the 'Rock Pile' taking in a scene that has awed and inspired thousands. Should you have the chance to visit the Canadian Rockies, a trip to Moraine Lake comes highly recommended.

See for yourself:

We just got home from BC and Alberta. In BC I noticed the green water in the rivers and lakes. So beautiful. Moraine Lake is gorgeous. We didn't get into the heart of the Rockies this trip.

What Karen Sees said...

Simply stunning. My favorite lake in those parts is Emerald Lake. I've been there once, and I'd love to go back.

Hoi Rick,

ik denk niet dat ik daar ooit zal komen maar ik ben wel heel blij dat ik deze plek bij jou kan zien. Als je op de foto klikt en je ziet hem in de vergroting dan is hij zelfs nog veel mooier en scherper.
Prachtige foto met mooi weerspiegelingen in het water. Bovendien heb je deze foto vanuit een prachtig standpunt gefotografeerd.
Heel fijn weekend.

Groetjes, Helma

Katherine said...

Oh my goodness Rick, this is breathtakingly beautiful. I reckon I could just while away the hours, sitting there on the rocks, just staring out into the beautiful view. Our world is just so beautiful. It's like a slice of heaven!

Leslie said...

This place looks like a little bit of heaven. Beautiful photo of it.
