Lake Louise is named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and the wife of the Marquess of Lorne, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.
The emerald colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers that overlook the lake. The lake has a surface of 0.8 km2 (0.3 sq mi) and is drained through the 3 km long Louise Creek into the Bow River.
The Victoria Glacier is visible in the background.

The eastern shore of the lake is dominated by Chateau Lake Louise, one of Canada’s grand railway hotels, a luxury resort hotel built in the early decades of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway.

I’m married to a wonderful man for over 35 years. I have one daughter and one grandson. I live in Winnipeg, Canada. Photography is my passion as is travelling. I do both whenever I can.

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! They don’t get any better than THIS!!!!!!!!!! ;-))

  • Thanks Steph. I could probably try to get it even better but we didn’t have much luck with the weather. You’re going to see one or two of my winter images taken on July 13th so you will know how extreme conditions we had this trip.

    We used to go there every-so-often when I was a kid. We would travel from Sacramento, CA and sped a week there with family friends. Gorgeous.

  • It’s a very beautiful area. You’ll find something to photograph every turn but with the weather we had this time it was really difficult to get a decent shot.
