Fall is one of the most beautiful times of year in The Kawarthas — a sentiment shared by many of our local photographers who head out on warm days without bugs to capture our local beauty and colour.
We are grateful for the fall season, especially this year. We are also grateful and thankful for all of the photographers who tag us with #kawarthanow on Instagram and allow us to share their great work with you. Our top nine always represents just a few of the many talented people in the region.
Thank you also to all of our readers and followers. In a challenging year, we appreciate you all more than ever.
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).

Successful tourism operators understand that, for their guests, it’s all about making meaningful memories. Beachwood Resort @beachwood_resort, nestled along the shores of Lower Buckhorn Lake in Selwyn Township, has been helping visitors do just that since 1926. The memories Beachwood’s guests made this summer were only possible because owners Krista and Dave Morgan used every skill and tool available to them to deliver a resort experience that focused on comfort and safety. Our writer Barb Shaw interviews Krista about the challenges Beachwood overcame this past summer to have a successful season — and how the resort is welcoming guests during the glorious Kawarthas autumn that boasts scenic vistas, crisp air, and no bugs — in our story in our Lifestyle & Family section at kawarthanow.com (link in bio). This story is one of a five-part series sponsored by @selwyntownship, as part of the Township's campaign to promote local businesses and community organizations as they recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
