Waterfowl Wedges

Here is a Vertorama of another gorgeous sunrise… this time at the Waterfowl Lake… in the Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.


There are actually two lakes called Waterfowl Lake (they were originally called “Duck Lakes” by John Norman Collie in 1903)… the “upper” and the “lower” lake. The two lakes were once a single lake that occupied a glacially sculpted basin… but at some point the rocks and debris that were carried down into the lake by the Noyes Creek (which flows into the lake from the east)… were deposited into an alluvial fan which ultimately split the lake in two.


Have a great weekend everyone!!


Nikon D300, Sigma 10-20mm at 12mm, aperture of f16, with a 1/13th second exposure.
