Although population density is really a matter of comparison (our dense might seem quite sparse in countries like China and India), views from above give us grounds for contrast.
At the end of March, we flew from Vancouver to visit family in Dawson Creek, B.C. As usual, those aerial vistas had my camera all agog.
The first shot (Dense) is one of part of Metro Vancouver, taken shortly after we left YVR on March 24th.
I took the second photo (Sparse) on the approach to Dawson Creek (same day). The row of wind turbines is the Bear Mountain Wind Park. The population in this corner of B.C. is not dense!
