Recently, myself and two other photographers took a trip to Abraham Lake, Clearwater County, Alberta. I had previously heard about this lake but nothing could have prepared me for the sheer beauty of it.
Having witnessed a lot of the Canadian Rockies in the past years thanks to my photography, It has become increasingly challenging to find something that really wows me. I appreciate it all nonetheless but this place really stands out for me.
Walking out onto a frozen lake, with ice three feet deep, and so clear its like standing on glass looking down to the lake bed. So polished and perfect you can make out every detail below, if it wasnt for the occasional visible crack, you would forget you were standing on a lake. All of this gives that same adrenalin rush and fear when you are falling in your sleep.
It was after walking out a few metres on the lake that we came upon the infamous bubble formations of Abraham Lake. These naturally occurring bubbles form as the ice freezes the same time as gas is released from the lake bed. They create the most stunning effect. I have tried to reproduce this effect as much as possible in the below photographs but seeing it in person is unforgettable.
