[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the beautiful morning light we made a trail along the Moraine Lake. There were fascinating photographing moments. In the workshop another beautiful view over the lake.

Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometres outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 1,885 m. The lake has a surface area of 0.5 square kilometres.

The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinctive shade of blue. The colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis.

Woow Peter,one of the most bright reflections never seen on TN,and a fantastic scenery too,this lake is a great spectacle,lovely view in the WS too! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hello Peter,
Beautiful landscape with cristal clear reflection. Good details and nice colour. Personally, I prefer bit less light in the sky to get well balance in the picture and in such way light on top right landscape would have been more dramatic. But need filter! Or PP work.
Thanks for sharing with useful NOTE,
Regards and have a nice WE,

hallo Peter
super mooie scherpe opname ,de spiegeling in het water is prachtig zoals ook de kleuren
bedankt weer

Hello Peter,
Breathtaking scene, almost like what you would see through a kaleidoscope. The colors and reflections are stunning to say the least. A winner in my book!!

Hi Peter
Lovely. The reflections are excellent. Slightly darker sky would have further enhanced the picture.

Hi Peter,
Thiss is beautiful. Although a little too bright, but the reflection's gorgeous, the composition's awesome and the way how you used the shadows / shady parts against the bright sunlight is amazing. WS is excellent, too. However, I also agree with Srikumar that a filter or some PP work would be fine to decrease the brightness of the sky, so I made a quick WS.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
