Озеро Морейн (Сапфировая чаша) — ледниковое озеро в Национальном парке Банф, в 14 км от деревни Лейк-Луиз, Канада 📍
Находится в долине десяти пиков на высоте примерно 1885 м. .
В 1899 году озеро обнаружил и дал ему название Уолтер Уилкокс. Позднее он вспоминал, что те полчаса, в течение которых он любовался озером, были самым счастливым моментом его жизни. Озеро Морейн до сих пор считается одним из красивейших озёр мира, многие сайты относят его к природным чудесам планеты.
Озеро подпитывается ледником и достигает своего полного наполнения лишь с середины по конец июня. Когда оно наполнено, в нём отражаются различные оттенки синего из-за преломления света на каменистом дне озера.
I was going through my photos from Canada and stumbled across this beauty from Lake Moraine! Apart from Peyto Lake, I would have to say that Moraine is one of my favourite lakes in Canada! #lakemoraine
It’s taken me a little while to process everything that’s gone on in the last few months, life really does move so fast when you’re living out your dreams... I’ve spent the last month enjoying the company of friends and family in Australia, mostly Sydney, had the pleasure of celebrating my 30th birthday here with my close friends and have given myself time to reflect on everything 2018 offered. I’m probably a little slow to the party seeing it’s mid January and most people are well into their 2019 goals and aspirations but comparison is the thief of joy and reflection is important no matter what stage of your life you’re at. I wanted to share this moment captured at Moraine Lake, Alberta, Canada 🇨🇦 from around the middle of last year at the conclusion of the 2018 @gopro creator summit. A first of many, my first time setting eyes on its beauty, the first time at a creator summit, the first time being recognised for my work as filmmaker and not a “personality” or “washed up reality television face😂” - the power of persistence in chasing the goals we each set out for ourselves. .
After arriving back in Sydney from this whirlwind 4 day trip to Canada, the earth circled the sun faster than I could ever imagine and Christmas was staring me straight in the eyes after stepping foot & capturing videos in The Maldives, Qatar, New Zealand, America, Ireland, The Maldives (again) Thailand, Laos & Cambodia... .
Its been one incredible journey & thanks must go out to the incredible companies I’ve been fortunate to partner with @gopro / @contiki / @redbullau / @clubmed - thank you for sharing my vision. As I sit here setting my goals for 2019, I can’t wait to unlock even more beauty than internet has ever seen and share more stories from depths of the earth that have only ever lived in my imagination. You become what you think about 🙏🏼 May 2019 be your brightest year yet. JR ✌🏽
The start of the trail wasn’t very exciting. This is where you need the most motivation to keep hiking because you feel like you are just hopelessly climbing. I always think about the 22 km hike I did to Trolltunga in Norway, where the majority of the trail,if I remember correctly, was among rocks with little views until the very end when we finally came up to Trolltunga. I remember wanting to turn back multiple times because it felt like we were going nowhere and I was so tired. With this hike being much shorter, once I hiked to Larch Valley and I could see the top of the mountain tops, I was encouraged to keep going to see the full view! I saw several people turning around right at larch valley but you only need to push a bit further to get to sentinel pass to see the amazing view of larch valley and it’s 10 mountains on one side, and a glacier on the other side that falls every 15ish minutes. .
🌎 Throwback to my trip out west and seeing the dreamy Moraine Lake! So many people wanted to have a photo on the log so it was super slippery and I nearly fell but somehow ended up looking decent! Have you been to Moraine Lake? It’s full of tourists but it’s really stunning.
