Lake Ballard Venus and Eta Carina reflections

lake ballard with moon and venus

This is a frame from a timelapse sequence for the Ancient Skies Project. I spent 5 nights at Lake Ballard in late August, early September 2010. The week prior was quite wet in the region, and I was fortunate a thin layer of water was migrating across the lake on the day I arrived.

  • Camera: Canon 5dmkII
  • Focal length: 24mm
  • Aperture: f/2.5
  • Shutter speed: 20 seconds
  • ISO: 3200
  • Date: August 2010

You’ll gather from other images on this site that I’m in love with star reflections….so I was more than happy!

A big thanks to Grant Wakefield and SkyScan Europe for providing funds to capture these images. Some timelapses produced by Grant that include this and others images can be found here:
