Kelowna has done a great job of developing the waterfront and building a lovely boardwalk to get you from The Dolphins condos and The Okanagan Grand Resort Hotel to City Park. There was a break in the foot traffic here on Saturday.
You wouldn't know it at first, but the top picture was taken at about 10pm in the black of night. Ambient light from the nighttime sky alone was used to the light the photo by way of a very long 25-second shutter speed. The bottom photo was taken the next morning in full daytime light. Things look so much better at night.
This rock cut-through along a Myra section of the Kettle Valley Railway in Kelowna reminded me of my kitchen countertop. Although this is shale I think, and not granite. I don't think two of the four people in this photo even noticed the rock around them since they were pretty busy trying to bundle up against the elements.
Effects from the Okanagan Mountain Park Fire of 2003 are still visible along the Myra Canyon Trail. The green of some spruce here alongside a hollow stand of burnt trees serve as a visible reminder of the fire that evacuated 27,000 people.
Normally the bane of photographers' efforts, these utility poles composed a rather pleasing perspective in Langley one morning as the mist burned off.
A pond in Maple Ridge that is regularly circled by dog walkers and runners has this sign posted along its banks. The ripples in the water speak to the redundancy of the warning so far this temperate winter.
