Close Up Water Photos in the Canadian Rockies

Close Up Water Photos in the Canadian Rockies

water photography, reflections in water

I came here for mountains, but my new appreciation is for the water in all its variations. The remarkable pool color water comes from silt they call “mountain flour” which changes how light refracts off of it, creating every hue from celadon to emerald, with a lot of turquoise and teal in between. So no, none of these have been photoshopped as so many of you have asked; these are naturally occurring colors. Other water here reflects sky, mountains, or trees, all changed again by the breeze. In this post are a lot (actually just a fraction) of the water photos I took here in the Canadian Rockies. Also in several, see how clear the water is, showing right through to the rocks at the bottom. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    You are to be praised for lifting us out of our asphalt bondage into the wild freedom of one of God’s
    many playgrounds. Joe
