Our top nine Instagram photographers for October 2020

Every month, we share the work of local photographers from across the Kawarthas

In a year when we need any kind of highlight or perk, October did not disappoint. The fall colours were at an all-time peak this year and were on display for several weeks, giving Kawarthas photographers lots of opportunities to capture their brilliance.

We also had a taste of winter near the end of the month, with an early snowfall giving a perfect dusting to some of our top photos in October. And although we didn’t have a traditional Halloween this year, there were still a couple of exceptional images for our week of Halloween-related photos.

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.
