i bet this is one of the reasons my friend has been wanting to drag me to that place. he told me a lot about the great potential for awesome photography there, and this is no exception. the composition is just amazing. specially the lighting. it's amazing specially on the trees on the mountains in the horizon. it's almost surreal! the water reflecting the skies adds a great contrast to the rocks and the warm light. and the fact that i can see the rocks even under the water gives me an idea that the water is really clean. such lovely reflections. great colours, composition and lighting. this photo has everything!

Love almost ALL your photos... what camera do you use if you don't mind me asking?
EvaMcDermott Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2011  Professional Photographer
I use a 5DM2 but in general, it has little to do with the camera. It is a matter of seeing something of interest to others.

how gorgeous...
looks warm as well..
Cocytus-cave Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Sadly, if you touch the water, you will feel the warmth and clarity of an iceburg. Lake Louise is very cold.
Inghelene Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I believe :D
Cocytus-cave Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No, not that song again! :D
Inghelene Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I didn't know it was a song ^^;
Cocytus-cave Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
No no, I'm sorry. I was merely refering to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The song 'I Believe' played over and over again within the entire period of the Olympics. Or so it seemed in Canada at least. In Norway it must of been different.

But I hardly know, sorry.
Inghelene Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I see.
Well I'm glad we didn't hear that.
It sounds really tiresome. xux

Sorry? oO, There is nothing to be sorry about, except for my lack of knowledge. :XD:
Cocytus-cave Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I apologize for everthing and anything. >.<

The song was even worse given that ---we of the French school division--- had to hear it twice as much. (They don't allow english music so to have a popular song in our own language... Tiresome is right. It was annoying in both official languages).

This speachless. I just had to look for it for a few seconds and instantly i knew that this was THE photo. The best I´ve ever seen!

The serenity, the warmth, the welcoming wilderness...

Whenever im feeling blue or need to think positive thoughts, I imagine a place like this, but havent actually seen it in reality. So thank you for creating a reality of my dreams!

Im going to buy a big one of this some day!

I went to Lake Louise with my family as a child. I remember it being beautiful but haven't seen the pictures in years. This brings back some real nice memories. Thanks for the great photo!
