    Hello Everybody,

    My first post of photos on this forum. These are some from the archives and taken with my old 1.3 megapixel camera in the summer of 2005. I hope you like them.

    Thanks for looking,
    Ann :)

    Hey Big Mike,

    Thanks for dropping by! Oh yes, I have seen your photos already...they are FANTASTIC. The Canadian Rockies are the most beautiful area I have ever seen in my life and so far I have been able to visit a few times. I hope to go again soon.

    Take care,
    Ann :sillysmi:

    Those are all fed by glaciers...so they aren't very warm.

    This water is very cold as it comes from glacier runoff as Big Mike mentioned already. Some people also wonder about the color of these lakes. Well, here is an answer to that:
    These lakes are can thank their brilliant blue color to the light filtering effect of rock flour (a powdery substance that the glaciers grind off the mountain rocks) in the glacial runoff.

    The rock flour suspended in the water filters out much of the light spectrum except for blue and green leaving this remarkable turquoise blue color. The rock flour might also leave that milky look to the water. That's why each lake looks different and each lake might look different on the same day. For example, in the morning it's like a mirror and in the afternoon it's blue. Big Mike has a photo of the Bow lake (the lake in my first photo), but with beautiful reflections: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=89064 photo #18
