Photographer's Note

Lake O'Hara is the name of a lake and alpine area on the western side of the Great Divide with the province of Alberta and Banff National Park to the east. The lake and the valley are accessible through a bus service or by a 11 km hike.

The area is known for its beautiful scenery as well as its world class alpine hiking. The number of people who access the area by bus has been limited in order to preserve the sensitive alpine environment. As such, it has become a very popular destination as a result of its exclusivity.

The day we spent in the area started very cloudy but became gorgeous just after lunch time.
