A time-lapse video of the Okanagan Valley fog. This incredible time-lapse shows the Okanagan Valley filling up with clouds on a sunny winter day. Shot on Nikon D500 and D7100 cameras, the film captures a phenomenon that occurs each winter called an inversion.
A full cloud inversion occurs when cold air is trapped by the valley and topped with a layer of warm air, which combines with moisture and condensation to form a sea of clouds. Sped up in timelapse, it feels as though the mountains surrounding the Okanagan Valley are jutting up from an ethereal, rolling ocean.
I spent a day filming these clips up in the Carmi area near Penticton and at Apex Mountain.
