Fairy-tale blue lake captured by nomadic photographer

Nathaniel Wise uses his camera to explore the most beautiful spots on our planet. Currently, he leads a nomadic lifestyle, travelling around the western regions of North America between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains.

The photographer’s breathtaking images capture wild mountain landscapes, emerald forests and lakes with almost unearthly, bright blue waters. One of his most memorable photos is of Lake Diablo in the North Cascades National Park in Washington State, which Wise claims is the bluest lake he has ever seen.

Diablo Lake is a popular destination with photographers and tourists due to its unusual colour. “It’s a striking blue/green colour due to the glacial runoff from the surrounding peaks,” the photographer told My Modern Met magazine. “Most people opt to go wide and capture the entire scene... but I enjoyed a telephoto approach, isolating the small sections of beauty around me.”

Wise has not only captured be fairy-tale blue of Lake Diablo: during his journey, he has taken photos of many other details of the wild landscapes of the mountains and waters of North America.
