Moraine Lake Waterfall

It’s Wednesday and it just feels like we need something to relax and carry us through the rest of the week so today I’m bringing you a Waterfall Wednesday!  There is something relaxing about a small hillside waterfall.  This waterfall area was on the way to Moraine Lake in Banff, Alberta, Canada.  If you take the Moraine Lake Road there is a large waterfall at the first hairpin turn that is fairly visible from the road, but further up you have to look for a small opening, you will see an inset bank of waterfalls.  When you hike in through the opening it seems like another world, away from the traffic and the outside elements.  You are just surrounded by lush green forest, moss and an incredible bank of continuous little waterfalls all the way up the hillside into the forest.

Have a great Wednesday!  Relax, it’s downhill from here!

    Nice silky water

  • Such vibrant colours! Thanks for showing me this spot, I had a great time shooting it with you 🙂

  • Wonderful image, Rick. You’re right, we need this today. 🙂 Love the great color in this and that water is awesome.

  • Now that is a great find Rick! Love the brilliant colors and I can almost feel the mist blowing off the falls.

  • Wonderful image Rick. I can stare at this all day.

  • Beautiful green colors. Wow!

  • Wonderful vibrant colours Rick. In London it’s been grey and colourless since Xmas. I’d love it to have some colour or even a good heavy storm here.
    At least I can content myself looking at this great image
