Peyto Lake, Banff National Park, Canada.
Explore #248 12th August 2012
Peyto Lake (pea-toe) is a glacier-fed lake located in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies.
It was named for Bill Peyto, an early trail guide and trapper in the Banff area.
During the summer, significant amounts of glacial rock flour flow into the lake, and these suspended rock particles give the lake a bright, turquoise color. Because of its bright color, photos of the lake often appear in illustrated books, and area around the lake is a popular sightseeing spot for tourists in the park.
Can’t believe that I’ve got over 21000 views for my previous shot.
Took this shot of Peyto Lake on the way to Banff from Jasper.
Was asleep in the car at the time and near missed the turn off up to this wonderful lake and only for my wife Joy i would have missed this shot.
Shot Details: 54Secs @F11
