Moraine Lake

Directions

Take Highway 1 from Calgary and turn left at the Lake Louise exit. Then follows the signs for Moraine Lake.

Story

We decided to stop at Moraine Lake while driving home from a house boating trip in BC as we were going to go right past it. There was a nearby forest fire that we saw an hour earlier that was leaving a lot of haze in the air that I hoped would make for interesting light.

We reached Moraine Lake just as the last rays of sun were hitting it for the day. You could even still see some of the haze from the forest fire.

    The lake is fabulous, great shot! You are really good with the camera in nature. The fire shot makes me uneasy since I live in an area where we just had terrible wildfires, destroying over 350 homes with two lives lost. I literally watched views like that daily until it all exploded one afternoon.

    Fabulous lake shot! The fire shot makes me uneasy as I live in an area where we just had one of the worst wildfires in our history with over 350 homes lost and two deaths. I saw views like this daily, until the fateful afternoon when it roared over the ridge into our neighborhoods.

  38. hermitsdoor September 18, 2012 at 6:26 pm - Reply

    I gather from the name of the lake that it is fed from a glacier. That color blue reminds me of glacier melt water too.

    My grandmother used to say I’m “built at the water” when I was a child and crying about something. Sometimes I cry easily, for example when I watch beautiful paintings or photos. Beauty makes me cry. It’s a relaxing kind of weeping though, and nothing to worry about.

    Hi Patrick, thanks for following my blog, I really appreciate it.
    I absolutely love this photo of Moraine Lake, it really is amazing. I love photos and I think you need both a good camera and a good eye. I have neither, you definitely have both!!
    Nevertheless I will continue to try to take photos and enjoy them. To be able to take photos like yours would be an awesome dream – definitely one for my blog!

    We went canoeing on Moraine Lake a few years ago. It was breathtakingly beautiful.

    I wasn’t going to comment at first but after seeing all the photos I just had to say you certainly have an artistic eye. You seem to capture the right moment and angle, and there’s that whimsical aspect to your photos that make them so charming. I’d have to say I would put down all the things that everyone else has said, but would add why aren’t you more famous? I think your work certainly ranks with that of Ansel Adams. I also think your adventurous spirit is awesome and rewarding; however having to crap out in the wilderness is not my idea of a good time!

    Have you ever gotten any photos at Muncho Lake or Destruction Bay? Every time I’ve driven through Canada, they have blown me away with their beauty – and I’m from AK, so I’ve seen some pretty scenery in my day. If you haven’t been to either, it is worth a trip. Your photos are fantastic!

    you have a gift for sharing awe, texture, light. I could take almost any one of your nature images and feel enough to write a poem. Few know how to use their eyes and encourage others to use theirs.

    Been close to that area, drove through Lake Louise when I moved up to Alaska back in 2003…loved it up there, so beautiful and really renews the soul.

    So amazing to have you following my blog, since yours is spectacular. I was always very wary of beginning this process because I didn’t want to do it to simply hop on the bandwagon, but in the end I wanted to have a journal for me, and me alone; if anyone took a shine to it then thats a plus. Absolutely adore your work. Bravo!

    That lake is just spectacular. We have a lot of small mountain lakes here in Colorado, but I’ve never seen one quite that color. Almost turquoise.

    Ahhh….I love Moraine so much. A hundred years ago (or more likely 30), my hubby worked there on an expansion of the facilities and we met that summer…..it has always been my favourite lake. Makes me homesick to see it…..

    Incredible photos man. I was lucky enough to live in Lake Louise a few years ago and woke up to vistas like this every morning. Not until I saw THAT photo was I reminded of how stunningly beautiful the rockies are. I’ll be making regular visits to this site!
