Canadian Rockies Winter - Tina Arnold

Abraham Lake is an artificial lake on North Saskatchewan River in western Alberta, Canada.

Abraham Lake was created in 1972, with the construction of the Bighorn Dam. Although man-made, the lake has the blue color of other glacial lakes in the Rocky Mountains, which is caused by rock flour as in other glacial lakes. Abraham lake has become a photographers dream in the winter. This is due to a phenomenon that creates "frozen bubbles" under the ice. The decaying plants on the lake bed release methane gas, bubbles of which are trapped just below the surface as the lake begins to freeze.
