Lake Minnewanka by Night

Directions

Take Highway 1 from Calgary and turn right at the first Banff exit. From here follow the signs for Lake Minnewanka.

Background

For the best results when doing astrophotography you want to ensure the following things:

  • Clear night.
  • As cold as possible.
  • No moon.
  • Drive as far away from any sort of city or town to avoid light pollution.
  • Shutter speed no longer than 600/focal length. This will ensure the stars do not trail.
  • If you have liveview, try zooming in 10x and manual focusing on the brightest star.
  • Aperture of at least F2.8 will help in keeping the iso low enough to avoid too much noise.

This particular night was nearly -20 Celsius. I parked half way across the dam and began to setup. Spent the next 40 minutes trying different compositions and exposures before the cold was too much and I decided to call it a night.

    Interesting that you’re a Canadian, programmer into photography and hiking. I grew up in Ottawa Canada, did a Masters degree in Computer Science and now I’m a guide in Israel so I have quite a lot of opportunity to photograph and hike. Thankfully I no longer have to deal with minus degree weather

    This is utterly captivating, haven’t been able to take my eyes off it for around a full 60 seconds. It must be incredible to experience such a landscape on a regular basis and has brought back memories of my time spend in Norway; I really must visit Canada one day, but who knows when I’ll have the money to book a transatlantic flight? Utterly mesmerising.

    Love night skies, but being a Morning Lark, as soon as the sun goes down, I’m out. However, with our commute to our cabin in WV (16 miles from the nearest town), this time of year when we arrive home the stars are out. We have had several cool (not early -20C!) evenings recently, with views of the Milky Way.

    Thanks for checking in our our recent trip to South Africa. Unfortunately, we had clouds and rain most nights while in the bush, so did not get to see the southern hemisphere night skies.

    The ability to remind someone that the beauty of reality exists despite the devastation of our perceptions is a unique gift. I look at your pictures, slow down, and imagine myself in the defeaning silence and the lighted dark. I imagine for one moment the feeling that I am all alone in a world of chaos. I envy you the ability to surround yourself with this much natural passion and while your photographs are beyond spectacular, I think I am more envious that you searched for it. Jessica

    I sometimes hate to use this acronym, but OMG!!! What visually stunning images, Patrick. Thanks also for providing the camera information to go with this (not that I own it – yet…). And appreciate the nod by you on a recent posts, “Martinsville, VA”; not sure how you found it, but coming from you, I appreciate it. Have a great new year shooting the stars!

  337. […] For much better and exceptional quality of images from this part of the world I recommend ‘Canadian Hiking Photography by Patrick Latter, a guy who lives around here and obviously knows what he’s doing technically and photographically.  See for example his ‘Lake Minnewanka by night’: http://hikingphoto.com/2012/11/12/lake-minnewanka-by-night/ […]
