Spectacular Alberta View

This photograph was taken on top of the ride on the Lake Louise Gondola ride. It showcases the emerald green lake of Lake Louise and behind her, the great Victoria Glacier.

According to Wikipedia, “Lake Louise is named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and the wife of the Marquess of Lorne, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.”

Also, “The turquoise colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers that overlook the lake,”
