Abraham Lake Sunset

Uploaded: June 21, 2012 15:47:54


I took my first trip this winter to the amazing Abraham Lake nestled in the Canadian Rockies between Banff and Jasper. I had no crampons and the slide out across the frozen lake to this vantage point was treacherous at times, but so worth it. The problem was not finding a composition, but choosing one over another! I liked this particular combination of bubbles and cracks, but what do you think? Thanks for stopping by and having a look.

You're braver than I am, but I think you picked the right one-lines leading up to the spectacular B/G. #1470697

I think it's AWESOME!! What a wondrous sight, and not sure I could sit on something that cold. The sunset colours are just an added bonus to this amazing beauty, and a wow to me that you can see under the ice!! #10195923
