|This photo of Peyto Lake I took in Banff N.P. in Alberta Canada.|
Peyto Lake is fed by the meltwaters of Peyto Glacier off to the left of the viewpoint, and the glacial silt (the fine rock particles ground up by the glacier as it passes over the land below it) floats out into the lake reflecting the magnificent "robin's egg" colour you see. The lake is named after William "Wild Bill" Peyto, a pioneer guide in the area and one of the park's first game wardens.

What a beautiful view with good DOF.
You can see until the clouds. Very good.
The colours are marvelous - this turquoise seems as it's mixed with milk.
I also like the sun in the front and the bad weather with the clouds in the back.

An excellent example of a valley carved out by a glacier, the u shape is very evident.
Great perspective down the valley.
The colours in the lake are stunning!
The clouds add another facet to your great shot.
Yes, Canada is a very beautiful Country, I like it. This is an exellent picture. Well done.

i live very close to here,too bad it was such a cloudy day on your visit.I have been here many many times and it's very hard not to get a picture with clouds in it.This lake is slowly being filled in by the mountain,someday it won't be there anymore,especially if half the mountain were to fall in on it.Whole towns have been known to be buried by avalanches.
i'd like to show my picture of peyto,it was chosen for the cover of a book! but i must let Jan have the moment! nice shot!
