Peyto Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Peyto Lake is a glacier-fed lake located on the Bow Summit on the Icefields Parkway in Banff National Park. The glacier flour in the lake gives it that beautiful turquoise color.

 

I arrived to the Banff area on a day when it was cloudy with intermittent heavy rain. Far off into the distance I could see that sunset sky that I was so yearning for; nonetheless, the beauty of this lake still made for a nice photo amidst the dark clouds.
