Photo information

Peyto Lake is a stunning azure-coloured lake in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada, located not far from the Icefields Parkway. The lake is fed by the Peyto Glacier, and during the summer months rock flour feed into the lake, and these particles are what give the lake a unique turquoise colour.

This shot was taken at dusk from the viewpoint at Bow Summit.
