June saw us jump right into summer with some extended heat waves, and on Instagram we jumped right into some intense and extended Kawartha sunsets. We love the longest day of the year on the summer solstice (June 21) and the visuals this year did not disappoint.
We had many contenders for top posts this month and the race was tight among our many talented photographers in the Kawarthas. We even had a tie this month in impressions between a sunset and a loon, with the sunset edging out the loon in likes.
Here are the top nine photos by impressions on our Instagram account in June, with links to the photographers’ Instagram accounts.
