In early winter, the landscape of the partially frozen Maligne River appears very peaceful as it drains from Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park on its way to meet with the Athabaska River. The blue sky overhead reflects on the snow that lies on Maligne Lake, colouring it a light grey-blue, and the low winter sun casts a beautiful golden glow to the peaks of Leah Peak (2,810 metres or 9,220 feet) and Samson Peak (3,077 metres or 10,095 feet) in the background.
