Canoeing across Lake Louise in Banff National Park is one of the most popular things to do in the park during the summer months. From 11 AM – 7 PM you can often find a dozen or more groups of canoers out on the water paddling slowly along and taking in the views of Victoria Glacier.
It was shortly after sunrise and the lake was calm – there were not any canoes out yet (they also offer sunrise tours but I’ve yet to see one out that early) – so I worked my way over to the other side of the lake and photographed the boathouse. I was attracted to the near perfect reflection in the water. I cropped it tight on the left hand side to eliminate a few folks who were standing there having their morning coffee. I didn’t think they added anything to the scene and would rather have the uninterrupted stillness of the morning to remember.
