Lake Minnewanka Stars

I saw stars! I was in the Canadian Rockies this past week and I completely fell in love with the landscapes around Banff and Lake Louise. I ran myself ragged photographing from sunrise to sunset and sometime after to capture the stars. I was fortunate to have some of the best weather they have seen in months.

This was my very last shot just hours before my flight from Calgary. I couldn’t help grabbing a few last star shots above Mount Inglismaldie on a chilly -10C evening on a semi-melted slushy lake. It was bubbling and cracking under my feet as I took this shot. In hindsight, I was very fortunate to not fall in… Mountain photography is not for the faint of heart.

    Great picture! The brightest “star” in that picture is not a star. it’s Jupiter!

    This is absolutely gorgeous. I would love it as a wallpaper, but the one on 500px is not large enough. Is there a way to buy a larger copy?
