Where has March gone? Between work and photo assignments, I’ve barely had time to scratch myself. As they say; when it rain’s, it pours!
Enough of the whinge. Today’s post sees a return to some of the snaps I took when were on holidays in Canada a few months ago. These photo’s are from Lake Moraine which is about a 15 minute drive from Lake Louise in Banff National Park. Its another glacial lake which you can see by the colour of the water. We visited here after spending the morning at Lake Louise and you can see the sun is pretty high in the sky. Most of you would know that this is the least appealing light to shoot landscape shots in, but when you’re traveling you don’t get much choice – especially when you have the family in tow.
For me, Lake Moraine is yet another stunning example of what treasures lie in the Rockies. It’s also another place I’ll be adding to my list of locations I’d like to visit again – next time, at sunset.

Above: A little squirrel or chipmunk, I think. This little fella had been dancing around the rocks scavenging food from a couple who were enjoying a little lunch on the foreshore.
Above: Yep, there’s the fam.
Above: This enormous pile of logs were scattered at the base of that rocky hill which I took the second photo in this post from. It seems they get washed down stream and get caught here…
Above: This is not Lake Moraine. In fact I’m not really sure what or where it was. On the drive back into Banff village we saw this vista and just decided to pull over for this quick snap.
