Water in its myriad forms, colors, strengths, and settings is such a compelling substance.  Below are just a few of these.
Waterfowl Lake along the Icefields Parkway in Banff National Park, Canada

Athabasca River, Jasper National Park, Canada

Takakkaw Falls, Yoho National Park, Canada
The water, which is fed by the Daly Glacier of the Waputik Icefield, falls about 1260 ft (384 m) making it one of the highest falls in Canada.  Takakkaw means "magnificent" in Cree.
