Moraine Lake is known all over the world for its spectacular, Kool-Aid turquoise colour*. The colour is such that it steals the show even from the sheer precipices that ring the valley in which it is set. Today I am attempting to give the “Ten Peaks” the attention they deserve by taking away a little blue. My initial goal was to come up with something original by letting the floating logs “streak” across the entire surface of the lake. It turns out that they were moving too slow to allow the camera to record enough motion. Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.
