The Red Canoes – Lake Louise – Canada

The Red Canoes

In the Alberta Territory of Canada lies one of the most visually inspiring stretches of mountains in the world. Banff National Park features the jagged and majestic Canadian Rockies and is littered with lakes that are fed from glacial snow melt. These lakes are filled directly by glacial snow and the minerals in the water give it this surreal color that changes opacity depending on the light and how it’s showing on it. One of the most famous of these lakes is Lake Louise because of the historic Fairmont Hotel that resides at its’ side and that is the subject of this image. What I love about this image is the mountain setting and the contrast of the Red Canoe’s vs. the teal blue waters of the mountain lake. It just makes you want to get in and paddle.
