Moraine Lake could be one of the most photographed lakes in Canada. This glacier-fed stunner has memorized visitors for over a century with it's turquoise blue waters (this is why) and scenic backdrop of the Valley of the Ten Peaks. Paul Zizka is part photographer and part mountain goat as you can see by his terrific perspectives of one of Canada's most iconic lakes.
