Pink Lake in Gatineau Park isn’t pink; it’s a deep green colour, due to an abundance of algae in the water. The lake is named after a family of Irish settlers, the Pinks, who cleared a farm in the area in 1826. Read more about Pink Lake, here.
The combination of water colour, stands of birch, oak, maple and white pine that surround the lake and the cliffs on the northwest shore make it a great spot to enjoy autumn colours and take photos. There’s also a well maintained trail that wraps around the lake to complete the experience.
This is an HDR photo put together from 3 separate photos, bracketed at 1.3 stops per exposure. I shot the first one at ISO 100, 1/200 and f.8. The other 2 shots were framed at 1.3 before and 1.3 after.
