Natural landscapes: a dynamic take on an iconic lake


I rarely visit this renowned Canadian Rocky Mountain lake during summer months; the place is so popular with tourists that it’s hard to really enjoy it. That said, my wife and I did get there in 2013 and walked along the shore.
I like this view, but with a straight horizon it was almost boring (believe it or not). So I twisted the camera, looked through the viewfinder and was impressed at how the scene became dynamic and memorable.
The distant building in the upper left is the Lake Louise boathouse, where folks rent canoes and go for a paddle in one of the world’s most stunning – and photographed – landscapes.
