Canadian Rocky Green and Blue

I think I’ll make up a new color since I can’t decide what it is. Aquamarine? Turquoise? Teal?  All I know is that I love, love, love the beautiful lakes of the Canadian Rockies.  And so for this week’s Fun Foto Challenge I give you Canadian Rocky Green and Blue in four lakes.

Lake Louise – Queen of the Rockies

I don’t know if there is a more beautiful lake in the Rockies than this one.

Unless it’s this one?

Lake Moraine  

Or this one?

Bow Lake

Or maybe this one?

Peyto Lake

These pictures came from our trip to the Canadian Rockies in August of 2016, but we’ve been up north to see these gems before.  Depending on the time of year, and the amount of snow and glacial silt in the water, the colors can change from shades of milky green and emerald to brilliant hues of purple and blue.

So these I am calling Canadian Rocky Green and Blue.  If you’re ever in the neighborhood, check them out.

  1. I love those lakes soooo much. I have to admit, when my friend first showed me photos of them, I thought they looked fake!!

    • A good choice Pete! 🙂 I saw them all but I’m still impressed looking at the pictures! Not because of my photography, but because of the incredible color and setting of those amazing lakes! And there were many more like them! It does make me want to go back again! 🙂

  2. These amazing reflection on the water is just as perfect as mirror does in emerald green and blue!

  3. Great post and fantastic photos, we had a chance to visit lakes within Banff National Park and I can stay they are the most visually appealing ones
