Natural landscapes: when water meets frigid air

WINTER AT LAKE MINNEWANKA, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA

Thanks to a power dam at the west end, this lake is the longest in the national parks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. But that’s not what brought me to this spot on an insanely cold (-32) morning. It was the juxaposition of boathouse, fog off the bit of open water, and the towering shape of Mount Inglismaldie in the background. The lack of wind that morning made it possible to make several useful compositions before I scrambled back inside the warm comfort of the van.
May you have a blessed Christmas with at least a bit of knowledge of what the day is really all about. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
