This is an accidental pano as I happened to take two photos that I was able to be stitched together. We had a two hour break in the rain on Saturday, which was enough time for us to do a bit of exploring, as I was really hoping to hike a bit above the lake and have a look around.
You can see our tent (bright yellow) lower center and slightly to the left. Our friends were camped a little to the right on a small peninsula, but the trees from this angle are hiding their tent.
I provided a larger version (1600 pixels long end) so you can see more detail.
The straight and even rocky ridge you see on the right is the glacial moraine which was featured in my previous posted photo (the location where I took the previous photo would be extreme far left of this pano). It's actually quite large when you are looking at it from this vantage point as it rises from the lake; steadily getting larger as it makes it's way up the glaciated slopes.
This was also our first proper peek at the lovely turquoise waters which the Joffre Lakes are famous for.

Hi Tim
Quiet a stunning scenery with good contrast between ground gravel, snow, lake water with the foreground pinewood, the reflectin of the pines in the calm water somehow adding an artistic value for this pix, the sky looks a bit dark but still not conceal the beauty of this place. How far this place from Vancouver?, I plan to travelling there next month :)

Hello Tim

An amazing place.The water is unbelievable with it's various colours and glass like surface.The composition is beautiful with the lake in a bowl,but with a wonderful vista just beyond it.You get the sense of altitude in this shot.The tent gives a good relative perspective.TFS


Beautiful and so near to me. The colors are perfect and the scene out of a NG documentary. Adding the tent makes it look as large and grandiose as it is in life. Since it is only 6 hours from me, it is on my list....

Braving the cold is worth it, it seems. What amazing scenery you've captured from your vacation Glorious!

The colors are amazing - the brilliance on the right hand side (my right) and the almost b&w quality on the left - very cool! :)

Lovely shot!!!
