Moonlighting Louise

One of the things I was able to do when I was up in Banff was to do a little late night long exposure work.  The first night I ventured over to Lake Louise, which was nearby and captured some shots of the lake with the glacier behind the lake at night.  Unlike the daytime, there was nobody around the lake at night.  The moon was a couple of days from a full moon so the moon gave off quite a bit of light, giving a nice reflection and lighting up the rocks around the lake.  It was a perfect night for capturing Lake Louise.
