There was a lot of moodiness going on at Moraine Lake this late fall morning. I liked the tones, depth and all the cracks and crannies the mountains were showing. Along with the exposed logs the grey overcast and the receding lake losing it’s blue luster I thought it would look good as a black and white.
Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometers (8.7 mi) outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet (1,885 m). The lake has a surface area of .5 square kilometers (0.19 sq mi).
The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinct shade of blue. The color is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis (from Wikipedia). But your not going to see that blue refraction in this black and white image :) Lake Moraine, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
