Image from advert This still was grabbed from an ad for traveling in BC. This ad: ExploreBC.com

Can anyone identify where this was taken?

    Presumably somewhere in British Columbia. Unfortunately that’s an area of almost one million square kilometres, a large fraction of which is covered in mountains and lakes. Nothing in this image appears to be particularly distinctive. I’d suggest your best option is to contact the body behind the campaign.

    @ChrisH I thought someone might recognize the lodge and the lake combo since they are quite distinctive. :( Aug 14, 2020 at 5:43

    It's probably the most recognisable part, in the unlikely event somebody here is familiar with that particular lodge. But a lodge near a lake isn't unusual, nor is it something I'd consider distinctive (especially when it's not the focus of the image but only incidentally included, with extremely low detail visible).

  • Actually, it's not that distinctive. It's not Lake Garibaldi nor Whistler which I would have thought them to be on first impressions. I did ask the question under the YouTube video so if I'll get an answer, I'll post it here.

  • It looks rather like a place I once visited in Alberta.

    I couldn't find this on Google Image search... Please keep in mind the locations vary based on your own location; that's why I resorted to YouTube. Good research!

    @gktscrk thanks! i never knew Google results vary based on your own location! no offense, and apology if i offended anyone. i said that so other people don't get downvoted and closed. i got downvoted and closed and critics because critics said I didn't Google.
