Thus far in my series “Travels in Canada”, I’ve posted photos that might beg the question “are these for real?”
The color of the water in this part of Alberta Canada, is a breathtaking mix of turquoise, teal, aqua, blue-green dependent on the depth, sun and clouds. The brilliance of these lakes is also explained by “rock flour”.
“The impressive colour comes from silt-like rock flour continually being carried into the lake by melt-water from the surrounding glaciers. The tiny and uniform particles become suspended in the water, refracting blue and green wavelengths of light.”
Suffice it to say, the pictures are for real. While standing on the shores, it defies description.
