If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that the best way to de-stress during this uncertain time is by getting outside.
Luckily the temperatures in January co-operated, and our local photographers delivered some of our top images ever.
The trails and parks of The Kawarthas are more important than ever right now — please be sure to take care of the natural spaces when you are using them.
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 2021.
