Emerald Lake in British Columbia, Canada

Yoho National Park

This is a top ten photography hot spot location.  We really are not sure how many top ten locations we have discovered but it might be more than ten. 🙂 The color of the lake will blow your mind. The spectacular colors will make incredible dynamic images. The one above in an award winner. How can you not get a top ten shot here? If you are not sure that you can, you can go with Pamela Goodyer and Extra Eyes Photo Tours in June and she will be sure you get a most outstanding shot of your lifetime.

Emerald Lake is located in Yoho National ParkBritish ColumbiaCanada.[1] It is the largest of Yoho’s 61 lakes and ponds, as well as one of the park’s premier tourist attractions. Emerald Lake Lodge, a high-end lodge perched on the edge of the lake, provides local accommodation. A 5.2 km (3.2 mi) hiking trail circuits the lake, the first half of which is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. During the summer months, canoe rentals are available; in the winter, the lake is a popular cross-country skiing destination.

The lake is enclosed by mountains of the President Range, as well as Mount Burgess and Wapta Mountain. This basin traps storms, causing frequent rain in summer and heavy snowfalls in winter. This influx of moisture works with the lake’s low elevation to produce a unique selection of flora. Trees found here are more typical of B.C.’s wet interior forests, such as western red cedar, western yew, western hemlock and western white pine. The alluvial fan on the northeast shore produces wildflowers in abundance during late June and early July.

Due to its high altitude, the lake is frozen from November until June. The vivid turquoise color of the water, caused by powdered limestone, is most spectacular in July as the snow melts from the surrounding mountains.

Photography Information:

Emerald Lake, BC, Canada Photography – This is one incredible Canada photography hot spot. This location will blow your mind when you get here. Extra Eyes Photo Tours do a tour here every June and that is when this award-winning photograph above was created. You will want to bring your wide angle lens and a circular polarizing filter on this trip. The water is still, so there is no long exposure photography going to happen here. You can get some dynamic colors here. Your circular polarizing filter will be sure to take the silver reflection off the lake and give you a vibrant reflection as seen in the main award-winning image.

Lens: this area is a wide angle lens locations. I would bring a zoom lens for the wildlife that you may encounter also.

Gear: Bring your tripod and your circular polarizing filter. The circular polarizing filter will make your white puffy clouds burst and deepen the blue around them. It will also take the glare off of the water and replace it with reflection. Bring your tripod in case there is not a lot of light to work with to get your depth of field when desired.

Gear List at a glance: Circular polarizing filter, neutral density filter, tripod, shutter release.
