Your Top 5 Photography Spots Around the Okanagan

BC’s Okanagan region is as scenic as they come, with sparkling lakes and sandy beaches, forested mountains, and even barren desserts. Sprawling vineyards and lush orchards dot the fertile landscape. It’s almost more difficult in this beautiful area to take a bad picture than a good one, but anyone looking for an exceptional vantage point should read on.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

We asked our Facebook fans to recommend their favourite photography spots around the Okanagan, and the following are their top five suggestions:

5. Knox Mountain, Kelowna

Knox Mountain lookout

In the number five spot is Kelowna‘s Knox Mountain Park, located just north of the city’s downtown core. The park’s 310 hectares (766 acres) includes a long stretch of Okanagan Lake shoreline, a network of designated hiking and biking trails, and an unforgettable view from the summit of Knox Mountain, elevation 646 m (2119 ft). Several ecosystems are represented within the park, and a number of endangered plants and animals can be seen here.

4. Carmi/Ellis Creek area, Penticton

Coming in at number four is the Carmi/Ellis Creek area east of Penticton, home to trails popular with hikers, mountain bikers and, in winter, cross-country skiiers. This area was affected by a massive forest fire in 1994, and visitors can now see evidence of both the devastation, and of the new life that has emerged since. Daytime views toward the city and the lakes are pretty spectacular, and at night the starry skies make for some amazing captures.

3. Mara Lake, Sicamous

Number three on the list is scenic Mara Lake, south of Sicamous. The lake is popular for swimming, fishing and boating, and the surrounding beach and park areas are a great place for a picnic. Mara Lake Provincial Park offers day-use facilities, where you can relax and take in the lovely views. Our Facebook fans have taken some great shots by the lake, including some spectacular sunsets.

2. Munson Mountain, Penticton

Just east of Penticton is our fans’ number two location, Munson Mountain, home of the iconic P-E-N-T-I-C-T-O-N sign that announces your arrival. The hike to the top of Munson Mountain is a local favourite, known for its stunning views and impressive photo ops. Enjoy a picnic lunch at a lookout point along the trail, or strike out early to catch the morning light, then treat yourself to a winery lunch after your descent.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

1. Naramata

And our fans’ favourite spot to capture unsurpassed images of this gorgeous region is in Naramata, along the southeast shore of Okanagan Lake. The view overlooking the lake from up on the Naramata Bench, home to some of BC’s best wineries, is not to be missed. And you can’t leave without stopping by at least a handful of the area’s tasting rooms. Fantastic vantage points are also found down along Naramata’s beaches. You may never want to leave!
