Photographer's Note

Again my version of a classical shot.

Moraine Lake is located 14 kilometres outside the Village of Lake Louise. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6183 feet (1884 m). The lake has a surface area of 0.5 km.

The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. However, when it is full, it is a beautiful shade of blue. The lake gets its color from the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis.

A nouveau ma version dun classique.

Lac Moraine se trouve 14 kilomtre du village de Lake Louise. Il est situ dans la valle de dix pics une altitude denviron 1884 mtres. Le lac couvre une surface de 500 m.

Le lac, dont les eaux tant dorigine glacire, natteint son niveau maximal que vers la mi, voire la fin, juin. Lorsque quil est plein toutefois, il est dun magnifique nuance de bleu. Il obtient sa couleur des rflexions de lumire sur les particules de roche en suspension dans ses eaux.
