Favourite Jasper Photography Locations: Cavell Pond

Leave a comment

One of my Jasper Photography favourites is Cavell Pond.  It combines everything a  landscape photographer dreams of…a beautiful emerald green lake (Cavell Pond), a magnificent hanging glacier (Angel Glacier), a towering snow-capped peak (Mt Edith Cavell), and if you’re lucky, some icebergs floating around in the pond!

The Cavell Pond loop is one of Jasper National Park’s most visited and most photographed locations.  The walk from the parking lot is easy and well worth the trek with camera bag and tripod in tow.

My favourite shooting spots are from the front edge of the pond (seen above), as well as from up above the pond on the trail to Cavell Meadows (below).

The best time of year to visit Jasper’s Cavell Pond is early in the summer, in late June or July.  That maximizes your chances of finding icebergs in the pond.
