Half an hour before landing in Vancouver

Here's the sequence of scenery change in the last 30 minutes of a flight, from some 2,000 metres above down to touching the ground in the airport in Vancouver.
It all changed pretty quickly from the area of Banff National Park where there was a total emptiness and feeling of hanging up in the middle of nowhere in space with intricate pattern of the mountains underneath.
Then through Kamloops with changing colours, lines and patterns down on the ground and towards the Pacific Ocean. Nice scenery but it's nice to be back after pretty a long, 9.5 hour flight from Frankfurt, Germany.
By the way, Lufthansa is a great airliner, possibly the best in the world!
