Photo of the Month: Soaring Over Cawston - Canada from the Air

Every month, we choose from the hundreds of submissions we've received for our Canada From The Air campaign and bestow upon one of them the distinction of Photo of the Month.

For February. we've chose this awesome shot from Grant Neilson. Grant is a pilot and he snapped this beauty soaring over beautiful Cawston in British Columbia. Cawston isn't the most well-known spot in the province, but it's nestled right between Keremeos and Osoyoos in the lovely Okanagan. Cawston is named after pioneer rancher and magistrate R.L. Cawston, and much like the rest of the region, Cawston is home to many vineyards, orchards and wineries.

The picture itself is packed with vibrant, verdant colours, punctuated by the white and red wing of the aircraft jutting into the frame. The quilted pattern of the land, askew angle and striking mountains in the distance all add to the originality and appeal of this wonderful photo of Canada from the air.

Thanks so much for submitting, Grant!

Submit your entry to or tweet them to @yvrairport. Be sure to include the hashtag #YVRCanada and where the photo was taken.

You can also check out January's Photo of the Month and remember to snap one or two of your own masterpieces on your next flight. It might just make it to our online or terminal gallery.
