date October 21, 2010 location Banff, AB-Canada

Today. I'm sick. I have come down with a rather severe case of the travel bug and it doesn't seem to be going away any time soon. What is it about traveling anyways? It seems like once you've been to one new place... you want to be to every new place. This shot is one of many to come from my recent road trip to Banff National Park in Northwest Canada. This here is Moraine Lake. What that link there will tell you is that I did not photoshop the color of that water. You see, this lake, and just about all of the lakes in Banff National Park, are glacially fed. The rock flour deposited from the glaciers refracts with the light in such a way that causes these bodies of water to appear the most glorious shade of bluish green. I can't help but to think that Bobby Boucher might spend some time here when he goes on vacation. I mentioned yesterday that photography offers an advantage over so many other hobbies for a variety of reasons. Well, another reason photography is great is because it forces you to explore and capture the world. I'm pretty sure that this is a corner of earth that I probably would not have seen had it not been for this crazy habit of digitally recording various light information onto my hard drive (perhaps an over-simplified definition of photography).
