Two of the world's most beautiful lakes are found in Banff National Park in Alberta. I have returned to them several times to photograph there. I've never quite captured Lake Louise as well as I have Moraine Lake. ML is not accessible by car in winter so I have yet to shoot it then.
The view below is famous to older Canadians, it was found on the back of the $20 bill during the seventies.
195° x 81° (.pano) Full size is 28039 x 14086 (395 Megapix)
|Super detail Moraine Lake $20 view|
This shot is one of my highest resolution panoramas. I've worked from a a smaller version here, but the big one, at 14,000 pixels high can be printed six feet high and still be sharp up close.

(This photo of Moraine is available as a jigsaw puzzle from Ravensberger.)

|Tall, wide-angle shot of Moraine Lake|
Shot on the same day, this hi-res shot captures the wider view (about 270 degrees) and more sky and moraine as well.

|Moraine Lake from the side|
A shot of the logjam at the side of Moraine lake on a cloudier day.

A half-gigapixel shot of Lake Louise with a focus on the central lake and people out on canoes.

|lake Louise in Summer|
300MPIX wide shot of Louise from June 2010

|Lake Louise, Banff, frozen in winter|
When Lake Louise is frozen, the wonderful colour is gone, but you can put your tripod on the lake and shoot the Chateau and glacier and the rest.
|louiset.jpg (7300 x 1100 - 1426K) or VR/Zoom!||360° x 49° (IVR) Full size is 21693 x 3269 (71 Megapix) (8' 7" x 16" at 210PPI)|
|Summer Lake Louise with mixed sun|
A view of Lake Louise from the shore in summer. Louise is actually most spectacular I think if you get some elevation above it, such as from the Chateau. Shots from the shore don't get the colour as well.
|louise.jpg (3212 x 1100 - 475K) or VR/Zoom!||120° (Guess) Full size is 4377 x 1499 (6 Megapix) (2' x 8" at 180PPI)|
|Lake Louise in Early Winter|
Snow covered Lake Louise from the chateau, at sunrise. Sadly, I realized after the fact the camera has been set in low resolution mode, so I don't have supersized prints of this.
|louise-10-filter.jpg (3015 x 1100 - 509K) or VR/Zoom!||249° x 90° (IVR) Full size is 8065 x 2942 (24 Megapix) (3' 6" x 16" at 189PPI)|
One cloudy day, I shot the lake with a gradient filter to make the clouds darker.
There are other panoramas of Alberta and Banff.
