Bow Lake – Alberta’s Glass Lake.
To say that Bow Lake is beautiful is an understatement. Anyone who has seen photos or driven the Icefield Parkway themselves knows how captivating the drive is. From the moment you approach the rest stop, you see the mountains towering above Bow Lake; it reflects, like glass, the sky above, while somehow managing to stay absolutely frozen despite the subtle breeze. Maybe I was lucky and stopped at the right time, but I feel as though I have seen this lake in other years, just as still and pristine.
Like many travelers before me, I wanted to stop at Peyto Lake (the brilliant turquoise lake seen in thousands of photos online that stands below a cliff viewpoint), but this lake was closed due to construction on a new parking lot, and also for CoVid. Bow Lake did not disappoint, however, and I found a moment to enjoy it in my #reddressseries that I made for clients to use in photo sessions with me — I can’t help it if I also enjoy dressing up in marvelous gowns and dresses for my own photo shoots.
