Medicine Lake , Jasper National Park

Medicine Lake , Jasper National Park . Filled by Maligne River and meltwater but works more like a bathtub – it drains underground … to finally show up in Athabasca River.

I was told that I should go to Jasper first not to Banff. Still 2 days in Jasper was a good start – some stunning places even with all the smoke from forest fires. It was my first time in Jasper and I'm sure not the last one.

BTW after all layers and processing this image ended at 2,55G , thank electronic gods that the hard drives are not very expensive .
