My interpretation of an iconic scene-a nice Surprise!

February 03, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I recently took a trip to up to Canada to visit Banff National Park. I wanted to photograph one particular region of the park. 
I was browsing on photographs on Ebay about a year and a half ago and came across a photograph of some mountains covered in snow while the lake in the foreground appeared to be turquoise in color. I was quickly drawn to this color and began to search the internet to find out where this amazing location was. I had to find it!! After about 20 minutes of research, I had discovered the location, Lake Moraine in Banff National Park.

I looked over hundreds of photographs of the lake, mapped it out on Google Earth, and thus began my goal to visit the region. It took me about 14 months of waiting before I could go, but it was worth it.It was spectacular!
The color of the water was turquoise/ blue.. The water that comes that comes off the glaciers is an amazing hue of blue.

Anyways, I had a preconceived idea of what the lake looked like and where I was going to take some photographs. I figured that it would be pretty much the same thing as thousands of others had taken. The classic shot of Lake Moraine( the same one that is on their currency). 

To my surprise the photograph is similar, but a completely different interpretation of the scene.

And yes, I am quite pleased with it!!
