Moraine Lake in Banff during a beautiful sunrise... Banff National Park, Canada's first national park, an easy1 1/2 hrs drive west of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. From Banff's humble beginnings as a 26 square kilometre hot springs reserve, Banff National Park now consists of 6,641 square kilometres of unparalleled mountain scenery nestled in the heart of the magnificent Canadian Rockies. This is an Icon of the Canadian Rockies. While it has been photographed by many, it seems timeless in the ability to give a different look on any given day or to any given photographer... Moraine Lake, a Canadian Classic!!!
