Two Jack Lake Milky Way

Two Jack Lake in Banff Alberta inside Banff National Park is a world-renowned lake that shows Mount Rundle when looking southwest. Two Jack Lake is a popular photography spot especially in the summer months at sunrise and sunset when there is no wind.

During sunrise and sunset; photographers usually get superb reflection shots that are extremely popular around the world. Tourists visiting Banff National Park get postcards of Two Jack Lake; Vermilion Lakes; Moraine Lake; Lake Louise and other world-renowned places.

When

One of the most popular shots in Astrophotography is a reflection shot of the Milky Way over Two Jack Lake. This is easier to get than most but requires planning. The Milky Way is usually aligned over Mount Rundle in April and May which provides a difficult situation for the weather. If you are looking for the perfect shot it would be advisable to wait until June or July but the smoke and haze start to show up. There must be no wind to get a reflection shot and there should be no clouds and no smoke.

Forest fires tend to start in May and last until August depending on the year and whether the summer is dry.

This particular photograph was taken on 31st July 2022 at around 10:39 pm when the new moon was several days old. This photograph was taken about two days after the Three Sisters Milky Way when we had favourable conditions. The Galactic center was not visible until 12:12 am on the 1st of August however the alignment of Mount Rundle was around 10:30 pm to 10:45 pm.

Why

I decided for this composition to take the photograph in the landscape. The portrait shot of just the Milky Way and Mount Rundle does not give enough reflection which was the purpose of the photograph. I also had a Canon loaner and tested the 24mm F1.4 lens with Astrophotography.

I use PhotoPills to determine the moon’s location and the Milky Way to align my shots. I also use the Photographer Ephemeris to determine the sun; golden hour; blue hour and other alignments. I am planning a YouTube video and an ebook to show how to capture the Milky Way and align your shots.
