iN PHOTOS: Natural beauty abounds on a walk along Penticton shorelines

Avid wildlife photographer Jodi Forster has been finding an abundance of colourful flora and fauna along the shores of Okanagan Lake and the Penticton Channel on her morning walk routes this month.

“Where I live in the Okanagan, it only takes me five minutes from my door and I’m on the Okanagan lakefront and the channel pathway,” Forster said. “At this time of the year I’m up and out the door by 5:30 a.m. and usually there's just me and my bird pals out there.”

The channel is a seven-kilometre waterway connecting Okanagan Lake to Skaha Lake and is home to numerous species of brightly coloured birds.

“I’m curious about everything in nature along my route, it's a special place to live. Photography helps me to really see what’s out there.”
