This is an interesting lake. The Maligne river runs into the south end but there is no river running out of it. The outlet was blocked by a landside many centuries ago. The lake fills up in the spring from run off, and drains by way of a subterrainian river system. As the run off decreases through summer, more water is discharged than is flowing in, until there is nothing left but a river channel winding along the lake bottom. So this isn't a snow covered frozen lake, but rather a snow filled lake bottom. This picture is looking south down the Maligne valley, the undergound outlets would be in the forground.

WOW! What a vast open area. It looks both cold and serene. Good shot.

Thank you, this is one of my favorite places. The valley carries on south, to the right of the mountains in this picture.

Great shot Scottie. I think your exposure is bang on. Lovely place you have there. Maybe when the water fills it up, you could show us a picture to see what it looks like in summer. Cheers........thekman.

I think it's a great shot, Scottie. About the only thing I would do is to bring out the trees on the far right and mid-left. With apologies, here is a (very) quick contrast mask... I'm just getting the hang of this technique, but it can help to bring out some details that are lost in shadows.

regards,

Thanks, I will be in this valley several times this year and will be taking the same shot, from the same place on each occasion, should be interesting.
Tom, I don't know how you did it but I like it.
