Lake Louise, Banff National Park Canada

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Lake Louise, Banff National Park Canada
Lake Louise, Banff National Park Canada
Lake Louise is the most famous glacial lake in the Canadian Rockies and considered the most beautiful in the Western Hemisphere was named for Princess Louise Carolina Alberta, daughter of Queen Victoria is 5,680 feet above sea level. Its emerald color is due to glacial rock flower (silt from the glacier). It remains frigid all year (no swimming). Victoria Glacier and Mt Victoria in distance (continental divide) and Mount Fairview to the left side.
I will present several views of the area in the next several days. Comment or critique always welcome.

Oh, I'll wholeheartedly agree with Michelle (I usually do - she has a great photo eye!) - this is wonderful - a real jawdropper - and one of the best of Lake Louise I've seen yet. Truly hope this beauty is seen again. Gorgeous scenery - gorgeous capture!
