Lake Louise BW
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

What's a trip to Canada without a trip to Banff National Park, and a trek to Lake Louise? You can't tell in this black and white shot, but Lake Louise is a blue-green shade because of its high mineral deposits... Think copper, or the Statue of Liberty (same reason she's green; copper isn't always a nice pretty coppery color, folks!). This is shot from the path that goes around the entire lake, looking up into the mountains.
I hiked to 7250' that day, up to Little Beehive, and as only I manage to do, I did indeed fall up the mountain (and blew the everloving you know what out of my knee, but that's okay, I still completed the 10km/6.25mi hike).
It also hailed, rather a lot.
A national park, Lake Louise, and standing amidst the Canadian Rockies is something that can't help but touch you. It was an amazing experience for me, seeing the beautiful lake, hiking as far up as we could through tree and snow line, and enjoying tea at the Tea House on Lake Agnes. I hope you leave this photo with a hint of what it was like to stand on the lakeshore.
