Moraine lake logs

the first view of the famous Moraine lake, on a chilly and windy summer morning. Moraine lake is probably one of the most visited and photographed spots in all of Canada, but it doesn't hurt to take one more shot! ... this is from the base of the lake, though I have a few more images from the more conventional viewpoints higher up... I came back later in the day to try and shoot this in a different light, but there were dozens of tourists scampering about on the logs, getting their photo taken. ... I do like this one with the sun just touching the tops of the peaks, and the memory of calmness and solitude...
