Twilight at Emerald Lake

690 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada

In 1882, during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway through the Canadian Rockies, the first non-indigenous person to view Emerald Lake was a legendary guide by the name of Tom Wilson. He had stumbled upon the lake completely by accident while tracking some of his horses that had gotten away. He named the small gem of a lake for the color of the water. Unlike the equally beautiful blue color of nearby lakes like Moraine, Hector, Bow, and Peyto, the color of Emerald Lake is different, due to the rock sediment that is suspended in the glacial water and produces a green spectrum when reflecting sunlight. Interestingly, Tom also named another lake to the east by the same name. That lake was renamed shortly afterward and is the world-famous Lake Louise.

The color of Emerald Lake is most spectacular in July and August when the glaciers containing the sediment melt somewhat in the summer heat. July and August are also busy times with tourists flocking to the area. This image was created at the end of December, a much quieter time at the lake, but also a time with an abundance of snow but open water. Photographed at dusk, with the illuminated lodge reflected in the water, the beauty of the solitude of Emerald Lake is revealed.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.
