Spray Lakes reservoir is one of 3 large lakes in the Kananaskis. It lies between the Goat Range and the Three Sisters ridge, at an elevation of 1,720 meters (5,640 ft). It is a prime wildlife area as well.

Spray Lake is a central point in Alberta's beautiful Spray Lake Provincial Park. The Park shares it's western border with Banff National Park.

Have a wonderful week, hopefully not too hot.

Here's a handheld cropped shot of that wee white-phase black bear cub that I posted earlier with one of it's black brothers. It had rained all night and they were wet and appeared miserable. Mother was busy refueling nearby. Was most delightful watching them.

Thanks for your visit. Always appreciated!

Have a relaxing yet fun weekend!

So many beautifully colored waters in the BC/Alberta national parks, like Lake Louise, Lake Moraine, Maligne Lake etc. Most of them receive their teal/blue colors primarily from glacial runoff. However the vivid turquoise color of the waters of this gorgeous lake is primarily caused by powdered limestone, leading to it's name: Emerald Lake.

Nature rules, and unfortunately much of my recent trip north had much cloudiness and rain. I spent a day here waiting for a break in the clouds to allow the sun to bring forth this amazing color. This was one of the few opportunities I had. In full sun the turquoise color is extraordinary. Next time!

Friday's here. Enjoy a wonderful day and weekend!

There is so much to wow and impress viewers when at Yellowstone's Grand Prismatic Spring. The mix of colors created by bacterial mats is amazing, and beautiful.

Moving from the coolest edge of the spring along the temperature gradient, the calothrix cyanobacteria lives in temperatures of no less than 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit), can live out of the water too and produces the brown pigment that frames the spring. I thought it's textures, streams and tones fascinating.

Thanks for taking a look. Always appreciated!
