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?
Or this one?
Or maybe this one?
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.
Oh WOW, I would have to agree with you. Simply Divine!
Thank you so much! I could stare at any of these lakes all day long!! They simply have to be seen to be believed! 🙂
Those lakes (and photos) are sooo beautiful!! How fun to get to go there and see them! 😀👍
Thank you! Yes it really was. Looking at the pictures makes me want to go back again! 🙂
I love those lakes soooo much. I have to admit, when my friend first showed me photos of them, I thought they looked fake!!
Yes, you almost have to see it with your own eyes to believe it. They’re simply amazing! thanks for your comment! 🙂
Well I am going with Bow Lake. 🙂 Such grandeur! Lovely shots, Susanne.
Best wishes, Pete.
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! 🙂
I think I prefer Morraine…
I’m partial to Moraine too but it’s a tough call. 😊
I think I love Moraine because there’s a super photo of me and my wife with it in the background…
There you go… makes sense to me. ☺
Absolutely stunning! The most beautiful lakes I’ve seen are definitely the ones in the Canadian Rockies.
Thank you! These may be the most beautiful lakes in the world! 🙂
These amazing reflection on the water is just as perfect as mirror does in emerald green and blue!
Amazing aren’t they? The colors are wonderful! 😊
Yes! They are magical! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
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
Thanks for your comment. I love the magnificent lakes of the Canadian Rockies! 🙂
