For the past three years Jasper National Park has celebrated it’s dark side showcasing the celestial bodies above it’s rugged and scenic landscapes. Most of the time we’re already tucked into bed too tired from riding, hiking, or climbing by the time the star-studded spectical illuminates the Park.

Photographically speaking

Having spent many years behind a camera it’s shameful to admit I know nothing about taking photographs at night – seeing the image above some may say I still know nothing about taking photographs at night – fair enough. But playing with light is what I do, so sticking with the fundamentals of photography produced the image above.

Still lots to learn and I’m in awe of those whom have mastered this nocturnal art form.

Jasper’s Dark sky festival

Designated as a ‘dark sky preserve’ in 2011, Jasper is home to an annual star-studded festival of sorts every October.
