Leisurely Afternoon - Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park, BC

Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada

A quick writeup today on our visit to Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park. Emerald Lake is located in British Columbia about 40 minutes west of Lake Louise, Alberta. To get there, you drive over the Continental Divide and it is well worth the time to visit. The color of the lake is deep emerald (hence its name), and when we got there, it was quite crowded. The time of day wasn't the greatest for photography, and the lake's surface was quite rippled. Despite that, it was still a beautiful place to visit. I decided the best way to capture the lake was by shooting visitors doing what they come here to do: rent a canoe and spend a leisurely afternoon paddling the lake taking in the surrounding beauty.
