Nestled in the mountains about 45 minutes North East of Pemberton, BC, Canada are the three Joffre Lakes. The three lakes are formed by the melting water from the Tszil Glacier. The sapphire-blue coloured water of the lake that results from the glacier minerals makes them to be amongst some of the most spectacular and breathtaking views in North America.
This was my second time doing the 6-hour return hike; and I was in just as much awe the second time with scenery around the blue waters of the lakes.
This time however, was prepared to capture some of the beauty with my Nikon FE. Looking at the scenery around me through a photographer’s eyes, I found the contrast between the sapphire-blue of the water, the lush-green of the forest, the bare-brown of the rocks and icy-blue of the glacier to be absolutely stunning.
I have tried to capture some of this stunning contrast in the in my photographs.
