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.

Blue lake


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...)


From a trip to Yosemite in 2011.

Convict Lake is a lake in the Sherwin Range of the Sierra Nevada in California, USA. It is known for its fishing and the dramatic mountains (including Mount Morrison) that surround the lake. Its surface lies at an elevation of 7,850 ft. (2,393 m).


The lake was named after an incident on September 23, 1871, where a group of convicts escaped from prison in Carson City. A posse, from Benton, led by Deputy Sheriff George Hightower, encountered the convicts near the head of what is now Convict Creek. Posse member Robert Morrison, a Benton merchant and Wells Fargo Agent, was killed in the encounter, and Mount Morrison was named after him.

Last evenings view exposing the lack of snow with grass showing. A few weeks back there was four to five inches of snow covering the grass and lake.

Upper Tipsoo Lake

Mount Rainier National Park, Washington


The clouds constantly moving around Tipsoo Lake and we kept guessing where it will end up for our sunset shot. In the meantime, my nephew and I kept framing shots and also fighting the mosquitoes (we were covered all the way to our head and they are still attacking us). There were only 3 photographers at this location and the lady was very kind to give us some of her mosquito spray, seeing us swatting away those blood suckers. Thanks to her and I believe her name was Kathy. Mother nature gave us a nice break with some incredible display of light around this lake at sunset time (those images will be coming soon). What a way to end our 4 days around Washington, quite a memorable afternoon. This is it for now on my Rainier images I need to learn some workflow to work on the rest of my images. ;-)


"A moment lasts all of a second, but the memory lives on forever."

Taal Volcano is an active volcano which can be found at Tagaytay PH. Its location is very unique because it was formed at the center of a lake. If you wish to see the volcano's crater, there are some tour guides who are offering this service. Less than an hour of boat ride and an hour of horse back riding then you'll be able to see it's biggest crater at the center.


Aside from that, you'll experience a cold wind in Tagaytay at night. This is the main reason why many Pilipinos visit this city mostly during summer, which is the school vacation here in PH, and on the last quarter of the year.


Since it's summer during the time i took this shot, my family and i went up to Tagaytay to relax and for our younger cousins to try out horse back riding. On the place where we stayed, i saw that Taal Volcano can be seen clearly so i get my camera and take some shots of it.


This is the story of this shot.


Thank you for reading and i hope you'll follow my future posts. :)

Lake Robinson near Greer S.C.

Evening by Lake Derwent Cumbria

After I dropped Joey off at school I was headed to the Skyline Drive to get some new images...that was until I remembered that my wife was at a client meeting all day. That meant I should be the "Responsible Daddy" and stay where I had cell signal in case something happened and I needed to get Joey from school. Yes, there is little to no cell signal ANYWHERE along the Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park). "Aughh".


So I decided to toot around while the clouds were nice and see what I could find to shoot. I found a nice 120 acre lake along route 340 which offered a few nice shots. And, I think I found somewhere that I can take Joey fishing this summer. Yay.


Early morning between blue hour and sunrise.

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 ;-)

String Lake is a small lake at the foot of the Grand Tetons in Grand Teton National Park. It has a well appointed campground and daysite and is popular with boaters and swimmers.

A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature.

It is earth's eye..

looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature

There are some places that are just magical for a landscape photographer.....and this one is pretty darn special.

Thanks - as always - for stopping by my photostream.

Schlenker Dam, a very small lake south of Hwy 46 between Gackle, North Dakota and Hwy 281. This lake only covers a little under 10 acres.

I spent sunset and blue hour at this little gem of a lake just up the road from Lake Louise. Thanks very much to Paul Bruins (Panorama Paul) for the suggestions on where to go to make the most of only about 18 hours in the park.


And thanks to those of you who have mailed me in the last few months. I'm still around, just been super busy at work and at home. I'll be up in Seattle and Oceanside between August 3rd and 12th if anyone would like to meet up for some shooting.


Cheers and thanks for stopping by!

Peyto Lake is a glacier-fed lake. The bright turquoise colour of the lake is a result of the glacier rock flour that is suspended in the water.


We we lucky enough to have a rainbow during our visit. This shot is taken from the Bow Summit.

I have developed a real appreciation for blue-toned landscapes. I've never managed to capture it myself before. Just enjoyed seeing it from others more skilled and more dedicated to landscapes than I am. So I'm particularly fond of these photos for the fact that I managed to capture such a scene. Add to that the alpenglow, and I have some of my favourite photos of the entire Canada trip.

My goal for photography in this trip was to come back with a couple of photos good enough to hang on my wall at home. I think with these shots in particular, I've given myself a difficult decision to make!

Hope you enjoy them. I can only reiterate what I said before; I do my best to capture a view in a photo, but you really have to see these places with your own eyes to take in the scale of the landscapes there. All credit goes to the plate tectonics and the glaciers, not the monkey who took the photo :-)

Early morning at Lake Coniston

Lake in Yosemite National Park

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.

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.

To go along with the CPL filter seeing into the puddle there at Pemaquid (see previous post), here the CPL was used to seeing into this pretty lake in Yosemite National Park.


Here this is a wide view stitch of 4 captures taken at the pretty spot for the wide view.

This is a different version of the lake from two nights ago. I'm really amazed I manage to get any photography done with my kids present. The dogs I have at least trained to stay out of the frame. I liked this little clump of mossy whatever it is that was sitting out in the lake...the image is a bit right heavy, but there wasn't anything else out there to use as foreground. This lake is pretty tough to get original with.


My friend Adam and I are heading out for a week long photo excursion to Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons. If any one has any suggesstions of locations let me know. It's been so long since I've been there...I can't really remember. I've gotten quite a few spots thus far from other friends, and photographers...and my list of places is getting pretty extensive...but I'm always up for suggesstions...and if you're in the area, and feel like being our bear all means feel free to come shoot.


THe dates are June (19-26) With the 20-21-22 being in Tetons 24-25 in Yellowstone and the eveing of the 25th at Palouse Falls on our way back.


This time tomorrow I'll b e approaching the trailhead for the seasons first backpack trip. Whoo-hoo!


oh yeah. Get on that mailing list!

and if you're interested in the the link on the webpage, and it'll take you to Stephen's page for sign-ups. We'll hit a lot of spots like this...and we've only had two people not return from a workshop!!! your odds are GOOD!!!

Crater Lake, reached from Maroon Bells by a 1 1/2-hour hike that the trail guides call "moderate" but that a flatlander Philadelphian with no acclimation would term "rigorous." An exhilarating hike, despite the warnings about a bear "encounter" two days before. Had the hike up all to myself, but on my way back I encountered scores of people just heading up to Crater.

From a rainy day in the Canadian Rockies, just a few moments of sunlight broke through.
