CAN YOU FIGURE OUT WHERE THE PHOTOS ARE?

CENTRAL OKANAGAN - We already know we live in paradise, with some of the most stunning views anywhere, but if you need further proof, check out these photos taken from Apple Maps and Google Maps.

Unfortunately, not all municipalities have such high quality images so we limited this batch to the Central Okanagan. Cruise through your favourite map maker at 10,000 feet and you will see large tracts of poor imaging. Some of the crystal clear images look as if they were lifted from a painting. None of these photos have been photoshopped or altered.

And just for fun, we are going to run these photos without descriptions to see if you can guess where they were taken. Some are obvious but for others... you will have to fly over the area yourself. Answers are in a link at the bottom.
