An ice sculpture at the bottom of Lake Louise ski resort, with selective colour added to bring the red out to highlight the Canadian theme.

Shot taken during our 2010 holiday to Banff (February 8th, 2010), in the Canadian Rockies, Alberta. This image was taken on the morning I proposed at Lake Louise. We spent the morning skiing in the Lake Louise resort, before actually moving on to the actual Lake Louise where I found a spot, got down onto one knee on the frozen lake and popped the question to a resounding and tearful YES! I had also been skiing all day with a bottle of Moet champagne in my backpack, with two plastic glasses too… glad I didn’t tumble :o

Processing carried out in CS5 and Nik Software’s Silver Efex. Image taken with a Panasonic Lumix G1.

Much better when viewed in large.
