Vermilion Lakes V

Directions

Vermilion Lakes is a short 5 minute drive NW of Banff. Take Mount Norquay Rd from downtown towards Highway 1. Then turn left at Vermilion Lakes Drive.

Story

With the fresh snow fall I decided to head to edge of the last vermilion lake. With the warm temperatures lately there was open water in much of the swampy areas here.

    This is probably one of my favourites; from the mirror-like reflection on the water to the snippets of colours to the sharpness of snow on foliage. My goodness this is beautiful.
