Okanagan Photo Gallery

Beautiful Okanagan Valley Pictures

This Okanagan photo gallery set is shared with us by a local professional photographer.

You may be thinking the Okanagan Valley is mainly fruit orchards and vineyards, but there is so much beauty to this region, you just have to see great pictures to get a good idea of what it's like.

Even during the winter months, Okanagan landscapes are amazingly beautiful!

Janelle Webster photography captures photographic art in maternity, babies, children, families, weddings, and landscapes. You can visit her website here - Janelle Webster Photography of Penticton BC. All of these images are subject to full coypright.

The Shuswap region is well known for it's excellent winter snowmobiling opportunities, and alpine skiing is one of the most popular winter activities. There are a number of excellent ski resorts in the Okanagan!

The Kettle Valley Railway 600 km-long trail of abandoned railway corridors, marked by tunnels and trestles built in the early 1900's. The KVR is one of the most fascinating attractions in the Okanagan, and a popular route for biking and hiking. There are 18 trestles in all, hundreds of feet above ground, including the infamous "McCulloch's Wonder".





Okanagan Lake in Penticton is home to local sculptures

A view of Okanagan Lake in Penticton BC, during a cold winter snap! These sculptures rest on rocks along the shoreline near the Japanese Garden in the city of Penticton. This unusually cold weather caused the lake to begin to freeze over, which it has not done for many years. In fact, in the mid 1900's when the lake did freeze over, ice sailing across the lake was a popular winter sport!
