Spray Lakes

Directions

Take the road out of Canmore towards the Nordic centre. Continue past the Grassi Lakes and the Goat Creek day use parking. Follow the unpaved Spray lakes road for about 27-28km until you see the Sparrowhawk Picnic sign. The lake is on your right.

Background

I arrived at the lakes about 1.5 hours before sunrise in the hopes to get some astrophotography shots. I had the extraordinary luck of seeing the northern lights that morning as well.

With heavy clouds rolling in, the sunrise I was hoping for didn’t quite happen. I ended up walking down the rocky beach and taking some long exposures of the low lying clouds instead.

On the way back a curious happy young moose wandered by.

    Wow~~ the Northern Lights… What a dream to be able to see that. Something I can only dream of today, but one day, I will see the lights. You are an amazing photographer.

    Beautiful photography! I’ve never seen a smiling moose before. The ones in Montana are grumpy. My family and I saw three moose in Glacier National Park one year. They came crashing out of the brush – a male, a female, and a baby. The bull was extremely grumpy. The cow and calf began swimming across Two Medicine Lake. The bull couldn’t make up his mind if he should follow her or attack us. Thankfully, he chose to follow her across the lake. We got some decent photos of them however.

    Love the photos, especially of the young moose. Maybe it’s the influence of Rocky and Bullwinkle, or the moose’s appearance on the TV show “Northern Exposure,” but I love moose. [ That view was altered, however, after I read Gary Paulson’s “Hatchet” and “Guts.” Both of them involve a run-in with a moose … and it wasn’t pretty.]

  201. Yvette Aubusson October 16, 2012 at 10:30 am - Reply

    Hi Patrick. What kind of exposure are you using on the Northern Lights? Are they that bright to the naked eye? They look like you could have reached out and touched them. Do they move or are they still, like sunbeams during the day? (Anyway, I’m sure I can check with Google God on that). The star backdrop and silhouette skyline make this a really stunning image. I am a compulsive obsessive star gazer so you have my attention. Did you notice you caught either a plane or a meteorite in the bottom left corner above the tree line? It’s a nice touch. Great pics all round. The moose is a winner (winners are grinners as they say.) Thanks for sharing. Yvette

    • Patrick Latter October 16, 2012 at 10:32 am - Reply

      Thanks. That particular night they were much dimmer to the naked eye, which allowed me to balance the exposure with the stars. I used a 30 second exposure for 1 of them. The lights do move through out the sky as well.

    The black and white scene is my second fave. A picture paints a thousand words and those tree stumps (?) tell a story. Adds to the remoteness. It’s a moody kind of image. Grand and ominous at the same time.

    Patrick, these photos are wonderful. Thank you for taking us there! I live in a place where we see few stars and certainly no moose, as yet. I love the third astrophoto.

    “The sunrise I was hoping for didn’t quite happen” Hopefully the tradeoff on the Northern Lights made up for it. It would for me, no doubt! Great shots, as usual.
