A step towards winter: morning at Moraine Lake




I spent the morning at Moraine Lake today.  A cold front swept in last night and when I caught my first glimpse of the valley when I drove up, the snow line was visible amid the layers of forest, rock and cloud.


At the lake, daybreak started cold with a steady drizzle of rain.  The blue water’s hue varied as the amount of light let through by the clouds changed.  I enjoyed the morning with the whole valley changing steadily.

  3. Who says you can’t take photos of the mountains when the fog is partially covering them up?! And like that ghostly face in the lake in the second last photo as well as the variety of view point. Beautiful Lake and range.

  12. Moraine Lake and Maligne Lake are a couple of my favorite places in Alberta, just beautiful. However, I found that I lost the crowds in Willmore Wilderness area, along sections of the Smokey River not far from Grand Cache. Lots of wild country to see up your way Christopher. I hope to get back again sometime soon.
