2013 北美西部行腳之十二 : 露薏絲湖 和 夢蓮湖                                                                 2013 Westbound 12 : Lake Louise and Lake Moraine

這輯照片是剛回來後用jpeg調的, 並不理想, 也有很多還未調。剛有了新電腦, 開始可以用raw的去調, 如果好的話就慢慢更換 (更換中!)。Most of the pictures shown here were edited in Aug ’14, shortly after we returned from Canada. I was handicapped by my old computer which could only handle jpeg files for HDR, raw files were way too large for it to handle. Right now I am setting up a better computer, this time I can work with raw files. The following would be replaced with better pictures in the near future (Folks, now in progress!).

這次北美西部之旅, 行前只有做美國境內的行程規劃, 加拿大境內的, 就勞親戚带路, 所以可以說毫無準備, 來到湖邊始知失策, 未能在晨昏時段來此拍照。露薏絲湖位於班芙國家公園內, 是人們必遊的景點。露薏絲湖原來是指露薏絲湖村, 村子分上下兩村, 下村近原鉄路站旁, 上村就是指地勢較高的露薏絲湖旁的小村。我們只作半天遊, 在岸邊對着湖野餐, 吃了些煙沙文魚, 牛角飽和水果, 好不悠閑寫意。也有两三家人像我們一樣, 在岸邊野餐。那天遊客不少, 但郤不覺擁擠。我們運氣不錯, 白雲朶朶, 為美麗的湖景添加戲劇效果。下次來,一定要住在Fairmont Hotel, 以便觀賞晨昏的美景。

Lake Louise is said to be the crown jewel of Banff National Park. It was originally referred to the hamlet of Lake Louise which consisted of the lower level village near the old train station and the other village on higher elevation, the lake area, on the other side of Route One. We only spent half day there, walked along the lake side trial for a while before heading back to Canmore for dinner. The lake is so beautiful and majestic, obviously it is a must-see destination for tourists visiting the Canadian Rockies. There were a lot of tourists that day, however, but we didn’t feel crowded. Like the family shown below, we had a picnic on the lake side deck, feeling relaxed and contented. I would love to visit Lake Louise again in the future on a fall day or early winter when there is more snow on the mountain, I can imagine that would be heavenly beautiful.

真的是野餐好地方。Probably one of the best places in the world for picnic.

他們說: 冰川明顯地愈來愈小。I was told that the glaciers are shrinking in recent years, probably due to global warming.

********************************************************************************

夢蓮湖: 夢蓮湖位於露薏絲往南14公里的山裡, 湖水由山上冰川溶積而成。由於冰川侵蝕, 山體岩名碎片被带至湖中大量沉積。每年六月, 溶雪灌滿湖, 水中反影着由湖底石粉折射的湛藍色或綠色, 非常漂亮。

Lake Moraine: To save energy, again, the following info are copied from Wikipedia FYI. [Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in theValley of the ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet (1,885 m). The lake has a surface area of .5 square kilometres (0.19 sq mi). The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinct shade of blue. The colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis.]

每年六、七月, 湖中注滿山上溶雪的雪水。In June or July, the lake is usually filled with water from the melted snow.

湖的藍色據說是岩粉在湖底折射而成的。The blue/green color of water is said to be the refraction of stone dust settled in the bottom of the lake.
