Hard to call it winter when it is 70 degrees F but it is January 20th...
Emerald Lake is located in Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada. It is the largest of Yoho's 61 lakes and ponds.
The first European to set sight on Emerald Lake was guide Tom Wilson, who stumbled upon it by accident in 1882. A string of his horses had gotten away, and it was while tracking them that he first entered the valley. The lake had an impression on even the most seasoned of explorers: "For a few moments I sat on my horse and enjoyed the rare, peaceful beauty of the scene." It was Wilson who gave the lake its name because of its remarkable colour, caused by fine particles of glacial sediment, also referred to as rock flour, suspended in the water.
Thank you for your comments.

Press "L" on your keyboard to view this at the larger size on black.
Thanks - as always - for stopping by my photostream.
Do you know the situation … you shold use a tripod to take a picture, but you have not taken it with you. During our sommer holiday I take it one day with me. And I was looking the whole day for a small lake to capture. Nealy at the end of the day I would take my chance ;-)
June Lake is located in the Eastern Sierra Mountain range in Northern California. It is at a high enough elevation for Aspen trees to thrive and create the amazing fall colors many photo geeks flock to in October.
Well... I've been digging in my Banff archives again... where I found this fairly unique composition of Lake Louise... captured in the late afternoon... on the last day of my trip.

Prespes consists of two lakes located in the northwest corner of Greece at a height of 850m above sea level. It is an area of rare natural beauty with eleven small, picturesque villages. Lake Megali Prespa is one of the largest lakes in the Balkans, and is separated from Lake Mikri Prespa by only a narrow strip of dry land. Originally one lake, over the last ten thousand years the gradual deposition of sediment from the Agios Germanos river, in combination with the action of the lake water, created a sandy strip of land which has divided Megali from Mikri Prespa. The forests of Prespa are dense with oaks, towering beeches and birches. Prespa has many plants unique to Greece, such as the Prespa Centaury, as well as ancient juniper forests. Lake Mikri Prespa is recognised as a unique wetland, particularly the area known as Vromolimni or Viro, which resulted in the area being declared a National Park in 1974. Prespa is known for its great natural beauty and extraordinary biodiversity. Perhaps the most impressive feature of the local fauna is the birdlife. Out of more than 260 bird species the populations of Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus) and white pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus) – two species which are threatened with extinction – stand out. Prespa is one of few places in Europe where the two species are found together and breed side by side; moreover the Dalmatian pelican colony is the largest in the world.
The Gaatkenplas in pure calmess.
Just sweet blue water , reflections and clouds.
The , man made, Gaatkensplas is a lake in South-Holland , the Netherlands.
In the middle of this picture , where the lake is rather deep, they've found archaeological remains from a late bronze age culture, in dutch called the Klokbekercultuur.
The remains are well taken care of, for later, when archaeological research is even better developed, and when there is enough money for a good research. (once in the far, far future...)
Most certainly my last post for 2014.
I wish you all a Happy New Year, and all the best for 2015!
And THANK YOU for your constant support and encouragements :)
It was snowing all day so the mountain tops were not visible.but the views were still stunning.
A different point of view.
Diablo Lake is a reservoir in the North Cascade mountains of northern Washington state, USA. Created by Diablo Dam, the lake is located between Ross Lake and Gorge Lake on the Skagit River at an elevation of 1,201 feet above sea level. Diablo Lake is part of the Skagit River Hydroelectric Project and managed by Seattle City Light.
The lake is home to rainbow, cutthroat, brook, and the federally threatened bull trout. It is a popular recreational spot for kayakers and canoeists. The unique, intense turquoise hue of the lake's water is attributed to the surrounding glaciers that grind rocks into a fine powder that is carried into the lake through creeks. That fine powder stays suspended in the lake, giving the water its brilliant color.
We finally arrived at our destination, the rain had followed us all the way to the Lake but it did not stop me from taking many images at a different point of view. The clouds and the mist added drama and a mystical effect to the scenery.
The lake's brilliant hues from turquoise to light blue were accentuated by the dark clouds.

Bear Lake, a popular destination in Rocky Mountain National Park, features views of the Rocky Mountains including Longs Peak which is the highest mountain in the Front Range. Bear Lake's still waters offer pristine views of the mountains that surround the high alpine lake. Many hikers continue up to Dream Lake and Emerald Lake via the Nymph/Dream/Emerald Lake Trail.
This is Johnson Lake in the stunningly beautiful Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. Places like this are really hard to beat. The Canadian Rocky Mountains are really an awe to behold. I do not get to the mountains nearly enough. It's time to go again.
