Kelowna and Vancouver are very different places.
Vancouver is a big, crowded city, next to the Pacific Ocean & Mountains, in the midst of a lush, wet rain forest. Kelowna on the other hand, is a rather small town in comparison, surrounded by barren, fire torched trees, dry yellow grassy hills and small mountains, in a desert. Even though it's only a five hour drive from me, the wild life and plant life are quite different.
Where we have seagulls, geese, pigeons, and crows, they have these fat, silly quails running around with bobbing heads and gliding from tree to tree. Kelowna is also famous for apple, grape, and peach orchards, along with many vineyards.

|This one was taken closer to Hope, I think, so it's more lush and green.|
|I love the ghosty horse behind the sprinkler.|
|I think this was taken closer to Vancouver (thus all the green)|

I really love nature photography, especially when I'm traveling. It is so exciting to see new terrain, and save the memories with a click. Sometimes I feel like I'm a traveling photographer for National Geographic, and that it's important I capture anything of beauty or interest, to share with other people (in this case, you guys :).
Hope you enjoyed the traveling down photos! Lots more to come! :)
