This is Emerald Lake in the Canadian Rockies. The color comes from the minerals found in the glacier that feeds the lake. I did not do any PP to change the color of this photo.

What a beautiful emerald colour the water is. Hence the name of course. I like how you framed it with the trees on the right. A really good job Julie.

Nice one Julie.Another shot that shows how similar Canada and NZ can be.This could easily be the Southern Alps.A beautiful and placid scene.
