It’s becoming a challenge to write nice things about the year 2020. But May!
Despite that nasty polar vortex over the Mother’s Day weekend, May did turn around to present us with summer-like temperatures by month close. That, along with a sudden growth spurt, made us feel a bit more normal.
In these challenging weeks, we all need more fresh air and nature, so we do hope that this month’s photographers inspire you to get outside in any way that you can.
Do you want to get on our top photographers list? All you need is an Insta account and to tag us using our hashtag #kawarthanow when posting your photo.
We share photos from across our readership area, which is the five-county area surrounding Peterborough which includes Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Hastings (we sneak in the occasional Algonquin Park picture as well, particularly if it’s by a Kawartha photographer).
To see our daily shares of photos, follow us on Instagram @kawarthanow and check out our feed’s highlight reels for recaps of every month in 2020.
