Interesting Photo of the Day: Postcard Perfect at Moraine Lake

In a scene that looks almost too pretty to be real, photographer Shuchun Du has captured a pristine combination aqua-blue waters, verdant evergreen trees, and towering mountains. The location? Moraine Lake in Canada’s Banff National Park:

The glacier-fed lake is a popular tourist destination, but it looks like the lucky canoers in the picture have the lake all to themselves. Though this photo was taken in the summer, when the lake is at its fullest (and bluest), this landscape is beautiful all year round. We featured another shot of this locale during the winter season as our “Interesting Photo of the Day” here.

Shuchun Du captured the shot with a Nikon D800 at f/9 and with a 1/250 second shutter speed.
