Crater Lake Pictures - A Natural Wonder Of The World

Crater Lake National Park is considered by some to be one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. If you've never seen it then maybe these Crater Lake pictures will give you some idea of how incredible this place is.

The intense blue of the lake under a clear winter sky is a sight you won't be able to experience anywhere else in the world. To gaze across the six mile wide expanse of this ancient volcanic caldera is truly something to behold. Bring your camera when you visit Crater Lake National Park because you will surely want to remember what you've experienced here.

Featured below are pictures of Crater Lake from vacationers just like you that have experienced the overwhelming beauty of this remote National Park. Much of the year Crater Lake is covered in snow. It has an average annual snowfall of more than 500 inches making it one of the snowiest places in the United States. Enjoy the pictures and keep checking back as they will update as more are added.

Water boatmen in the very dry southern Oregon mountains south of Crater Lake

Water boatmen in the very dry southern Oregon mountains south of Crater Lake

Or should I say "water boatpersons"? We were camped on a dry hillside far from any running streams or ponds when I left a cup of water on the thick plastic bed-cover of our pickup truck. Within a few minutes, water boatmen started raining out of the sky (it was late in the afternoon) and most of them hit the water in the cup. A few missed it and I put them in the cup, too, where they happily swam about, no doubt drinking their fill, as flying in the warm summer air (RH probably at 20 or less) is a dry business for small insects and they may well have been at Death's door when they spied the water in the cup as they flew by.

I looked into this unlikely phenomenon and learned that water boatmen regularly migrate from ponds and streams where they live to new ones and that they do this by flying. They can also detect even small bodies of water (= my cup) by the reflection of plane-polarized sunlight from the water's surface. A very useful ability when migrating across dry areas!

Note the water boatman climbing up the left side of the cup: I presume that it had drunk its fill and was climbing up the side of the cup to fly on again in its migration.

The lake's maximum depth has been measured at 594 m which fluctuates slightly as the weather changes. On the basis of maximum depth, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States, the second-deepest in North America (after Great Slave Lake in Canada), and the tenth-deepest lake in the world (Lake Baikal is the deepest).

Crater Lake - Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

There are two things that I remember vividly from Crater Lake: the unique manta ray shape of Wizard Island and some of the bluest water found in the world. The water is also some of the purest that you will find anywhere. When researching the reason for why the color was so blue, I found the answer on the National Park Service's website (paraphrased in the next paragraph).

The water is so blue because there is hardly anything else in it. The water molecules found in Crater Lake contain no sediments, algae, pesticides or pollution, making it very pure. The water molecules absorb all of the color spectrum of sunlight except for the blues. The key to creating the deep blue color is having enough water to absorb the other colors. Since there are 4.6 trillion gallons of water in the lake, there is no problem.

Vizard | Crater Lake, Oregon

Vizard | Crater Lake, Oregon

The day before this shot was taken, amid a snowstorm, we blazed a trail in fresh snow to a spot we had picked out for sunrise. A day later, most of the fresh trail was covered in snow. So, having to blaze another fresh trail, we didn't make it quite as far as we had liked for sunrise. But we ended up discovering this area where fresh snow made interesting formations for foregrounds.

The island in the middle is named Wizard Island. I really like how the V helps frame the image.

This was a pano, consisting of 7 vertical frames.
